I think MK has something here, but it strikes me that the cows are not behaving correctly. Whenever there are calves or yearlings present in the herd, the adult cows will be protective and territorial. Cows will even chase deer out of their area, and knock down fences doing it. I've even seen a group of cows corner a panther against a barn in South Texas and try to stomp it to death. The only time the're not aggressive, is when they are used to seeing familiar animals that they consider non-threatening (farmers, horses, donkeys, the farmers dogs, etc.) I would think that cattle would consider a bigfoot to be threatening. I would expect to see all the calves/yearlings running straight to the adult cows, and the adult cows gathering together to protect them, and never taking their eyes off the bigfoot. However, the cows in the video seem rather unconcerned. The two black calves that appear are playfully chasing each other, and the one adult cow in the foreground raises its head to look at the subject, but then just lowers its head and continues eating.
I find MK's second video more interesting.
