Dung Lung

Death by breathing in dung fumes. It doesn't sound like a pleasant way to go, though perhaps not the worst since apparently before it kills you it paralyzes your sense of smell. But it's definitely a weird way to die.

So the cows have taken revenge for us not letting them roam the fields.

I remember stories of workers dying of asphyxiation in large emptied wooden wine vats while doing repair work at local wineries. The evaporating alcohol from the wood slats displacing oxygen was the cause in those cases.

Yes, this is not an unknown danger.

At least it's not as horrible as drowning in liquid manure, which has also been known to happen.
