These herd animals can be very aggressive when protecting young and during the mating season, but they generally prefer flight to fighting.

Wild cattle stand nearly than 6 feet tall at the shoulder and are 9 to 12 feet long. They weigh 1,800 to 2,400 pounds.


Stampede (Ex): A frightened herd of cattle flees as a group in a random direction (but always away from the perceived source of danger). They literally run over anything of size Large or smaller that gets in their way, dealing 1d12 points of damage for each five cattle in the herd. A successful Reflex save (DC 16), halves the damage.

If cornered, wild cattle will charge and attempt to gore the predator.
