Cows too. When I were a little lad, we went to a nearby dairy farm and watched the cows being milked, and I near as dammit got kicked by a cow who was being milked, just got too close.
I like the waterside, rivers, oceans, etc. But I'M not going to be the one in the news getting washed off a rock by a rogue wave while taking a photo, or getting caught by the incoming tide while digging clams, or getting washed off a bridge or down a creek trying to cross high water.
Some people, though ... either living ignorantly or living dangerously, the result is often much the same.
