    a bull I called Daisy. At 5 I laid on his back and petted him until I was caught and told he was a vicious animal and male. LOL. I got chased by  hogs once when I entered a  pasture not realizing they had been moved there. I heard thuds and looked around to see a herd of hogs, big freaking hogs coming at me. They will eat you if your body lays around I was told. I ran like the wind and I have never been able to duplicate that leap over the barb fence.

    But the very worst animals on a farm were turkeys... There is a good reason when someone calls someone a turkey...Meanest animals and dumbest F***ers alive... On farms at least. LOL

      A friend and I were walking through the woods looking for a lost dog, and managed to climb into a pig pen (although we didn't know that at the time, it was just a fence going through the woods), and about 5 of the scariest looking sows came out of the woods BARKING at us and running after us. Chased us right back out of that pen, LOL.

      there is such a panic at the beginning of "The Wizard of Oz" when Dorothy falls into the pig pen.  Those buggers can be mean.

      I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.
