Keeping our footpaths safe for walkers
The dog was very badly bruised and lucky to be alive.
I ended up on the ground, being trampled under the hooves of 10 or 15 cows.
One particular cow made straight for us.
Nearly forced to turn back.
We got over the stile with a second to spare.
I discovered the rest of the herd were right behind me.
The cow put its horns either side of me – and launched me onto the heath land.
Serious injuries and no laughing matter.
I waved my arms and roared loudly as the cow bore down on us.
The fields have become dangerous places to be.
These aggressive animals were way more than 'just curious'.
The cows repeatedly kicked me all over my body.
