You can find this described in Chapter 4.

The people come on to the farm to try to drive the animals off.

The animals start off with small attacks.  First pigeons and geese, then sheep and Benjamin the donkey.  Then Snowball gives an order and they all retreat.

At that, the men think they are winning and they charge.  When the men are well inside the yard, the big animals -- horses, cows and pigs -- come out of ambush and surround and attack them.  Snowball, for example, attacks Jones and (even though he gets shot a bit) butts Jones into a dungheap.

The men get kicked and bitten and such until the see a way out and run away.
