The interaction between humans and wild or stray animals does not always go as planned. We have seen situations changing for the worse in the past during such interactions but most people do not learn. Here is a video that shows how a man tried sitting on a bull and the aftermath.
The video is from an unknown location but it is definitely from India. In the video, we can see a stray cattle on the road and two youths riding on a bike. The rider takes the bike close to the bull while the pillion tries to stand up and mount the bull. The aggravated bull crosses the divider and starts jumping, causing the man to lose balance and fall down.

There were two-wheelers on the other side, which the bull nearly missed. It would have been catastrophic if the bull had hit these motorists. Nonetheless, no one got injured in the incident. However, authorities should take action against such people to ensure that such incidents do not happen.
In India, stray cattle have become a major problem. On the highways, strays move around freely and with the high-speed vehicles rushing through, there are a lot of accidents that do happen every day.
Be wary of stray cattle
There have been numerous cattle attacks on road users in the past and some of them have turned out quite badly. A CCTV footage that became viral sometime back showed a stray cow attacking a biker on the road and injuring him seriously. Nothing can be seen in the camera that could have sparked the attack by the cow in that video. Stray animals can be unpredictable and it is important to be safe and keep a distance from them on the roads.
Stray cattle are a major problem on many highways in India and there’s nothing much that has been done to remove them from the roads. A few years ago, officials in Uttar Pradesh had put high reflective tapes on the horns of the stray cattle to make them more visible at night. However, no step has been taken to remove these hazards from the road as of now.
It is always safe to drive defensively on the Indian roads and be assured of the road ahead before overtaking. One should always be sure and know about the road ahead when overtaking. Many recorded incidents in the past have shown that blindly overtaking can cause massive accidents, especially on Indian roads that are very unpredictable.
