Supernatural animal CE Morale 8
AC +4 Immune to non magical fire
HD 6
MOV 16 ground
Att Butt 2d4 or Trample 3d4 or Special

Bonnacon is a monstrous bull like beast with inward curling horns and a horse like mane. It will often butt opponents and will knock over human size targets on a natural roll of 18+. With a move 6 run up charge it can do double damage. It enjoys trampling downed foes brought down by it's butt or special attack and has +4 to hit prone targets.

Its special attack is to emit a 30 degree range 4 cone of burning feces from it's rear end cloaca inflicting 2d4 fire damage on any in area. Any who fail a save are on fire and take a extra d3 per round until they make a save by rolling in the ground or some other means like jumping in a river. 
The fire is considered a non magical effect. The bonnacon loves to trample victims on fire trying to roll on the ground to put out the fire. They love to trick foes into chasing them. 

The area ignited will continue to burn for a turn and any passing through the fire take a d4. A bonnacon might try to cut off escapes or encircle defenders with fire. They delight in burning dwellings and human farms. They especially enjoy eating rotten cabbage and other food. They dont even like each other except to breed which they do infrequently. Demons and devils apparently breed them in their evil realms keeping them in herds.

1in6 are larger with 8HD
1in10 are as smart as a human and more cunning and malicious and can talk

-make more optional checks if a greater threat required say 3 or 5
