cow, hen, pig, sheep
Justify each of the above as a valid answer for "Odd man out" question.
(In reply to Pet peeve

I beg to differ:
If one strictly accepts your reasoning some of your samples will become "good" just by virtue of rewording:
e.g. Sheep is the only word in the list that has no successor.(good)
instead of "last in the list". (bad)
You say " 3 of Charlie's 5 justifications do not meet my admittedly exacting and nitpicky standard"
I say: Charlie's answers are ok, they adhere to commonsense ,- and this should be the only criterion to their validity . The ambiguity is a built-in essence of OMO - type puzzles.
I, too, am relieved to get it off my chest...
