Sometimes you have un unexpected visitors, like this huge bull, that suddenly appeared at an aid station during an ultra trail running race. Coming from down the road, stopped for a minute to decide if he was willing some watermelon, but after a couples of shooooos, he went away. Some runners reported that they better took the hard path near the barb wire, in order to avoid, just in case, since those horns look terrifying. Couple of hours later, the owner came asking for his ox, that escaped from a nearby town down the road. Later on, they came back with the huge not-on-the-run-any-more ox.
Another report from a friend running the same race yesterday: in a single track trail, they encounter a big buck deer, that got scared with the runners and began to run, against the race course, almost hitting some others, before exiting the trail...
And you... any interrupting encounters during a race / hike?
