This is getting more and more common.
Is it because there are simply more people using the countryside...
..or is it something in the cattle feed...
..or is it that farmers are not handling their stock enough.....
or simply putting mad cows in very fields with rights of way in them.

Either way - stay clear. You just know what these beasts are going to do.

Sad - hope the lady is better soon.

they can be protective especially if with young and you have a dog with you thats nervous of them, in which case let the dog go, theyll chase it, also being handled from young and used to people /stockmen coming to feed them with a bucket or bag, they think any human is good to them and if you have a ruck sack mm well thats the dinner call, put that down and wander of till safe.
