I was riding down a stretch of super-rural road about a month ago and had just passed an old farmstead where a local farmer kept a few odd cows. I hadn't gotten but maybe a 1/8 of a mile and I heard something on the road behind me and when I slowed and turned my head I realized I was being chased by a large steer. I wasn't sure what to do but I had one heckuva headwind and didn't think flight was a reasonable option. Luckily when I stopped he stopped and we just kinda stared at each other until he bluffed out and headed back up the road. whew.
Bet nobody ever had to mace a cow.
Surely there are some other bizzarities that you peoples can share.
