Dealing with some bull

Most CHL/LEO contacts are positive, how about yours? Bloopers are fun, but no names please, if it will cause a LEO problems!

Dealing with some bull

#1

Post by SA-TX » Wed Jul 26, 2017 10:35 pm

Literally. :biggrinjester: Some cattle escaped from the property behind my house today and a bull (I guess because it had horns) and a couple of cows were grazing in my back yard. While I appreciate them eating some weeds, they also left divits just from their weight given the rain we've had. I can only imagine.rhe damage they could do when angry.

This is in the LEO section because I called the Ellis County SO's animal control unit. I tried finding the owners first but no one answered my knocks on a few doors and the No Tresspassing and Protected by Smith & Wesson signs made me reluctant to poke around too much. The officer was great and was able to find the cattle and owner quickly. I only wish I'd gotten the owner's number in case they escape again. Well done ECSO!

I have a pic but I can't get the "add file" option working from my phone.

It's not the difference is not horns between Cow and Bull and Steer.

Yeah, it's not the "sticker outers" it's the "hanger downers" :biggrinjester:
