Cow week: Welsh cattle hate dog walkers – Boing Boing

18 08 2012

My father-in-law is a keen hiker, and by and large pretty fearless. But he hates cows. Well, not in a nice pepper sauce with mashed potatoes. But in a field. Actually, “hate” is the wrong word. He’s scared of them. Now I’ve read this article, I’ll no longer poke fun at him for it!

Cows kill more people each year than sharks, it seems!

This is actually about risk analysis, and why we fear what we do, and don’t fear what we should.

Maybe it’s because people eat more cow than shark.

I once had shark in Oman. I was sick for a whole day. It had NOTHING to do with the fact that they sold gin by the half-pint. Nothing at all.

They even have the black/white checkered band around their police hats like in the UK.
