Hey, question: I'm not sure if this is the appropriate trope or not, but in many works of fiction that feature aliens or other talking birds, such characters will treat the sight of humans eating chicken as if it's cannibalism even if the character is a raven, parrot, or eagle and thus no more related to a chicken than a human is to a cow. Is that an appropriate example to list on this page?

Even large, herbivorous domestic cattle are more dangerous to handle than tigers (which are carnivorous, predatory, and wild) are.

I'm sorry, WHAT?

Cattle aren't likely to avoid humans, and have social dynamics that promote intra-herd fights. They're also big, heavy, and come in big herds.

In the US, Cows routinely kill more people each year than bears, alligators, mountain lions, and venomous snakes combined.
