Raging Bull talkes out Rider...OUCH!

There i was, minding my own business riding home from the store when, BAM!, I got run over by a bull. Even with all the proper PPE, this is going to hurt! https://www.foxnews.com/auto/video-c...t-at-top-speed

I need more information:

Was the rider of the religious persuasion that considers cattle gods? If so, he gets no sympathy from me, as this has to be expected when you just let your "gods" run around unfenced and wandering out in the middle of the street.

If he believes such is abject silliness, I hurt for the dude. I've often thought that if I had to live in India, I'd be scared to death of hitting cattle with my bike, or, you know, cattle hitting me.

A couple years ago I was leaving Yellowstone driving very slow and watching out for the tourists crossing the road to take pictures of the entrance sign when out of the corner of my eye I saw something big and brown coming out of the ditch. I quickly looked in my mirror and that quickly a bull Bison up on the road behind be. I mean within a millisecond I missed getting bowled over.

Brings to mind a bit from a comedian I can't recall, doing a hypothetical Ohio State vs. Harvard football game:

"Harvard's quarterback, Reginald Smythe III, is graduating early with a 4.0 average in mathematics. Then he's going to Oxford on scholarship for graduate school...but he's not going anywhere right now, because he's just been SAAAAACKED by Big Moose McGinty! Big Moose is a 6th year Senior majoring in undecided, and there's a lovely shot of his wife and 5 kids in the stands."

Glad I don't encounter one of those every day...........

For some reason, hitting a deer doesn't seem quite as bad now.

I can tell you from knowing some bison farmers, even if they don't intend to kill you as some bulls do, many have this mischievous (to them) streak where they just like to throw their weight around, and it's like if they can hit you and send you flying, they'd then walk off like a 5 year old giggling at what he just did. The males just like whacking things, because fun.
