Message Title: MY BUDDY GOT STOMPED

When small farms were thriving and farms consisted of chickens, hogs, cattle, and crops farm, accidents with animals were not too uncommon. One of our nieghbor's sows bit all the way through his boot and took a chuck out of his leg. He was lucky. Some farmers would get knocked down in the pig pen and be eaten by the pigs before they could be saved. There was another neighbor lady that got beat up badly by their bull (cattle not elk). Horses can kill with one kick and, yes, chickens and geese can attack and terrorize little children. The point is that all farm animals can be dangerous if not handled properly, this not unique to elk farming.
Be carful and remember farming is one of the most dangerous occupations. Just ask your insurance agent.
