    Ever notice how cattle can get themselves into trouble?

    I'm curious to hear about your personal experiences for how cattle can get themselves into trouble. I'll start it off with this one from several years ago that managed to get twisted up in four strands of barbed wire plus a strand of electric fence. We got him out and he limped for a good long...
