I remember seeing 'a rampaging bull with a full head of steam', and how it had 'bulldozed' its way through a stile - up-ending part of the adjoining right-hand fence in the process -, in its attempt to join the latest 'Bash'.
Such impressive 'manly' power yet no way to impress a lady - nor, presumably, the onlooking, stomping, blue-in-the-face Farmer Giles.
Why not just put up a sign saying "no trespassing". The bull can't read.
This is more imaginative than 'no trespassing.'
Elizabeth, may be so, but can you imagine a bull reading.
It's for the foolhardy trespassers to read Ken not the bull- he'll be hiding somewhere - ready to charge the unwary!
Given the height of the grass, the field is unoccupied. Safe to cross.
That's how it had been with me Veronica (despite me having kept to the public paths): A stile to address, and then on into a seemingly empty field. The rampaging bull had been about forty or fifty yards away as it sped past. This afternoon's search on Maps confirms the 'demolished stile' to have been one of two unaffected areas of 'wooden fencing overgrown by small hawthorn'.
Oh 'eck! I can hear the stampede from here Philip!
If you're ever menaced by a bull never run or you'll definitely get charged down . Your only chance is to yell at it as fiercely as you can. The chances are it will bolt to the other side of the field. Cows with calves can be equally aggressive. Never get between them.
I think more walkers have been trampled by cows than by bulls.
