Not quite the same scenario but during my research on the Black-necked (Satin) Stork for my PhD I observed cattle and horses that aggressively walked towards loafing storks. They appeared to resent the presence of the storks in their area. The storks usually stood up and walked a short distance away until the cattle or horses lost interest.
