No Bull: Owner Not Liable For Negligence In Handyman Mauling

As a guy who grew up on a farm and who has seen his fair share of bulls over the years, I’m not sure I agree with this court decision.  Not all bulls will attack, but you have to be aware that any bull could go psycho on you and kill you in a second.  Bulls are inherently dangerous because of their size and because they are as dumb as an ox, which after all is just a bull without the full equipment.  That doesn’t necessarily mean the owner was negligent, but I’d say he was if he told the handyman it was safe to turn his back on the bull without a locked gate between them.  Also, I have a beef with the story about the case — the writer apparently thinks the word "heifer" means the same as a bull.  Come on, don’t they have editors at that publication?
