On the 7th September, I was walking on my own in Havering Country Park.
While walking through a public field with cattle, I noticed two cows bumping heads together, so I stopped and observed the area for a few seconds. Then, one of the cows started to run towards me.
I held my hands up and stayed stationary. The cow slowed down and stopped. I then slowly started to walk away.
The cow stood its ground as I left the field, and it then ran to the water trough for water and seemed unsettled in general. From a distance from the field I noticed there were several heavily pregnant cows amongst the cattle.
It was a scary situation which I didn’t feel prepared or warned about. There should have been more warning signs for the public using the paths.
