I've seen them being round up with helicopters & 4x4's before and that's one thing, but rammed into with quads

We use same here on some places choppers far up and out as welsh boy said and our dogs did in close work. I have seen a bull and quad come together bull walked off quad towed away smashed  & rider broken arm. Just for the record big black n white bull turned into the quad, lifted front off ground and over.
