It was a footpath through a large field, that until you’re in the middle of it do you realise there are cows in it. These cows are inquisitive and came over. I was surrounded by 20 cows and backed up against the hedgerow. I was assertive and told them to GO AWAY and managed to edge into the next field, along the footpath. But they followed me. It fields aggressive but I know it’s inquisitive but it’s scary. Once I was safely behind two gates on the footbridge I photographed them. I believe some were bullocks as they had horns and one mounted another. I think they should be behind an electric fence when they get to that size/age
