Holsteins?
Some similarity in the markings but my first thought was airbags?

Holstein cattle are easily recognizable by their distinctive black and white markings, but may also be red and white in color (caused by a recessive genetic trait). Mature Holstein cows typically weigh around 1,500 pounds and stand 58 inches tall at the shoulder, making them the largest of the U.S. dairy breeds.

I've never understood the attraction to bovine-like boobage.
More than a handful's a waste in my book.
But, to each their own, I also prefer whiskey to beer🥃

Word, dawg... 99% of criminals cannot aim or shoot for shit, and the 1% of them already cause enough chaos as it is. What makes them think that committing acts of aggression against a populace who trains, shoots on a regular basis, BUY MORE AMMO, and do it all over again is a good idea?

Darwin must be getting a laser printer for his office for all those awards that will be needed...

"...serving as Team Leader, Team 2, Third Platoon, Company C, Third Reconnaissance Battalion, SECOND Marine Division (Forward), II Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward) Afghanistan, on 4 October 2011 in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM. While conducting a dismounted combat patrol, the lead element of his platoon became decisively engaged by multiple insurgents. Staff Sergeant Haralovich immediately split his team into two elements and began to maneuver toward the fire from a well-concealed position at a distance of approximately 75 meters away. He was in the lead and knocked to the ground as two enemy rounds slammed into his body armor and gear. Instinctively his Marines attempted to run to his assistance but he ordered them to covered positions as the enemy fire intensified. As his team attempted to gain suppression, he skillfully moved into an advantageous position and launched a rocket at the ambush position, effectively destroying it. With the enemy withdrawing, Staff Sergeant Haralovich then led his team to the flank of the enemy's first position, forcing their withdrawal and relieving the pressure on the remainder of the patrol. He then led the pursuit of the retreating enemy forces for the next two hours. His indomitable courage and relentless determination proved critical in the successful defeat of the enemy in the village of Ghora, Helmand Province."
