Taylor Mountain Cattle Grazing

http://parks.sonomacounty.ca.gov/_templates_parks/LandingPage.aspx?id=2147484538

Cattle Grazing Area Safety Tips Keep your dog on a leash at all times! Dogs are perceived as predators. Cows cannot always distinguish the difference between a coyote and a dog and may become aggravated by an approaching dog off leash.   Do not attempt to pet, feed or touch the cows. Cows are very protective of their young. Do not get in between a calf and its mother and do not approach a stray calf, its mother is likely nearby.   If Cattle are on the trail ahead of you: Make yourself known well in advance by waving your arms and shout. This will usually make them scatter. The other option would be to turn back!   Be sure to give cattle plenty of space and an avenue of escape. If you encounter a cow that is acting in a threatening manner or appears to be sick, injured or dead, please take note the location and report it to park staff.   CALL: Sonoma County Regional Parks at 707-539-8092 EMERGENCIES ONLY CALL: 911
