Besides, cattle, sheep and emus do *not* respond to alerters. They just 
blindly follow the animal in front when alerted. Trust me on that one!
The most dangerous situation (day or night) is when animals are gathered 
on both sides of the road .... you have no idea which way they will 
bolt. Just slow right down and cover the brake.

I'd be interested to know what brands you tried, and what conditions surround the observations.

I have encountered a cow on the road on my tri bike; I stopped 100m away to see what it would do.  It was blocking my side of the road.  2 approaching cars went through slowly, so I figured it was not going to spook.  Rode slowly past it, and it took off, which gave me a fright... why didn't it bolt when cars went past...
