Bull attacks and feral pigs

The death of a Victorian farmer due to a bull attack is a stark reminder of the inherent danger in handling livestock.

His death comes after a woman in WA died from injuries when a bull pinned her against a gate.  

Bulls in particular guard their territory and the stock they are with. If a person is in the wrong place they can be lethal. The simple rule is that if any animal shows bad temperament, flick them as soon as possible. 

Pig-headed hunters

It beggars belief that idiots have released feral pigs in areas close to Melbourne so they can shoot their offspring. Anyone who has been affected by the damage wild pigs can do would be incensed.

It is the worst kind of environmental vandalism. Those caught shooting pigs in sensitive locations should be assumed to be involved. No good behaviour bonds or senseless fines. Straight to the slammer.
