Nice images and great story, Birddogman!  Were I to find myself in your position, I imagine the story ending with me tangled in barbed wire, probably inverted, and severely gored.

I live in Central Oregon near lots of cattle ranches.  The cattle are usually behind barbed wire fences—but not always.  Last year, a colleague of mine was driving down the highway in his large red minivan when he approached a small group of cattle grazing along the outside of the fence.  Before he knew it, a large bull emerged from the group and came charging at the side of his van.  The thing caved in the drivers side of the van, shattered nearly all the windows, and, in the process, knocked itself unconscious.  His experience has changed the way I view bulls—and stories like yours.
