n.— «Considering the sheep are ovine, not canine, it is ironic that the term for this type of capture is “bulldogging.”…Cornelius said the key to bulldogging was to get as close as possible one or two metres above the sheep and steer clear of areas covered in scree. “You get them off their feet and once you’ve got them, they relax a bit,” he said. “You tip them upside down and tie their feet. Hook them up, hop back in the helicopter and away you go.”» —“‘Bulldoggers’ in wild and woolly roundup” by Beck Eleven Stuff.co.nz (New Zealand) Jan. 13, 2009. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
