I should say scary cows. Watched the girls in the lot across the road worry a half grown raccoon to death the other day. Heard the mooing and bawling for quit some time and went for look see. Last time they did this there was a couple coyotes sniffing around and they didn't care for that with all the new borns. One ol momma ran right through a barb wire fence and a quarter mile up the road chasing them coyotes. Anyway back to the coon. Poor little critter would try to get away and they would run him down. He would lay on his back and smak their noses when they got to close. One ol gal snuck up behind him and put her head right on him and kinda twisted and bounced him around for awhile. Didn't move after that and the cows and calves just went back to grazing and nursing like nothing happend. Never seen anything like it.

Friends of ours brought their heifers in off the range and put them in a small pasture near the house. About one in the morning they heard the heifers bawling up a storm. Our friend grabbed a light and a shotgun and ran out to the pasture. The heifers met him at the gate, still bawling, and then ran down to a tree in the far corner of the pasture. They stood in a circle around the tree, bawling and looking up into the tree. When he got down there and shone the light into the top of the tree, he learned they had treed three coons.

Now that's funny! Years ago we had a pet raccoon named ginger. One night i was walking her on-leash in the moonlite and i spotted our neighbor's rhodesian ridgebacks coming our way. I shortened the leash cuz when threatened she liked to scurry up the nearest tree and i was usually it. Not this time. Ginger arched her back but stood her ground and the dogs wisely separated, slowly approaching her from both sides. She nervously looked from one to the other as they got really close to sniffing, and finally when conditions were perfect, she bit one nose and scratched the other! The dogs both spun & left, yipping and i let her calm down a bit. Some wordless situations are just too funnny. :)
