Wild Charge

A herd of Wild Cattle, the only ones in the UK, roam the hills around Chillingham in Northumberland. Expertly looked after by Ellie, the stockwoman. Stockman is definitely not right and Stockperson sounds like a warehouse operator. Cowgirl as used by some newspaper articles is just not a proper name for someone who has one of the most dangerous jobs there is! So stock woman it is. We saw the cattle last month on our round the UK mammal tour. The talk given by Ellie was informative and interesting as it always is. She obviously holds a wary respect for her charge; and rightly so. These are formidable beasts.
