So, as I've been playing the HELL out of Red Dead Redemption 2 (lovingly called RDR2 in the Ilgenfritz household), I started to wonder about how painful it must be to either be hogtied or try to rope a wild animal that is running in the opposite direction as me. (I know. I need some more hobbies to pre-occupy my mind.)
The latter is now answered for me.
Well... unfortunately for this chap, I now know I don't have to take up lassoing to understand it can be EXTREMELY PAINFUL.
