Who knew? All these years with the horses, pickups, dogs, motorcycles, four wheelers and even on foot? Frankly, I've never seen cattle chase after something quite like that silly little R/C off roader. Yeah, load up the back of a pickup with some tasty feed to get the herd to follow - but at a dead run?
I have seen cattle move like that when a domestic hog gone feral got 'em all worked up. That was different. The cows bunched up into a big circle looking outward protecting the calves in the middle, and the bulls hounded the hog. The free life hadn't really treated that hog very well in the first place, so he was hardly a threat. The cattle didn't care - they did not like that hog. My buddy, who owned the cattle and rented my pasture, had seen this and come to me because he knew I was appropriately armed. So, we drove out there and I shot the hog, and frankly, I put it out of it's misery. It had not adapted as well as this hog.
Another thought - sooner or later, whomever is behind the wheel of that R/C car would get their a$$ chewed by the stockman for running off the pounds and unnecessarily stressing his cattle. If you were to believe the animal activists' insistence that cattlemen are cruel, heartless bastards, you might be surprised to find how protective those bastards are with their charges, and how they can go from zero to highly PO'd in under five point nine seconds if someone is screwing with their wards. Just sayin.'
