We had 5 honey bee hives, surrounded by a 10x20 chain link fence directly behind the main gate going up to the hay fields. This was while I was recovering from being paralysed. My legs were working good enough to get on and off the tractor with help. My wife opens the gate and away I go to cut a field or two. When finished, drove back to the gate and start calling my wife in the house. After a little while a scout bee checks me out. Leaves and returns with reinforcements. I knew what was coming so I raised my hand to save my head. Guess my calls got louder because my wife came running and opened the gate. Drove through a short distance, and she helped me off. Our bees had been getting more aggressive over the years. We no longer have honey bees. Also had a 1000 lb. steer put its head between my legs and throw me against the wall. Our very mild dairy goats, who normally come out two by two to get milked, decided six would come running me over and tearing my meniscus requiring surgery. Or the 200 lb buck goat who plowed into my chest taking me down. At the time I was wearing my coveralls, had my lcr in my pocket. But the hammer got caught on my pocket. By the time I got it out, he was no longer a threat. Also the occasional attack of a rooster, or the copper head that bit my wife while she was picking beets. All true.
