NO BULL!!!!!



This is the site I saw when looking out my window the other day, the site that lead to an adventure. We went to check out why 3 animal control trucks were in the neighbors driveway as we thought that maybe they were getting a horse since there was a horse trailer attached to one. NOPE! There apparently was a bull that had been loose in the area for a couple of months and they had chased it up into our neighbors yard last night.(they have an electric fence surrounding the property) They brought up 4 guys and some fence rails from the fairgrounds to try and catch it. We were watching trying to see the bull and got up onto the porch which overlooks a field. They eventually got the bull (he wasn't really big at all)into

the pen they had made(after a half hour of standing in the rain and hail). It was funny to watch the bull try and get out, he kept pushing up the rails with his horns and then the rails touched the elec fence and the guys were getting shocked while holding it but they said it helped calm the bull down cuz it was shocking him too. Then the bull got out of the pen and at that point they made us leave our neighbors porch and property. As we walked up the driveway I looked back and saw that the bull was only within a yard or two of us! And me wearing a RED rain coat. I hurried the girls away quietly while praying for safety and we came inside to warm up and finish school.I went back out with the

camera to try and get a pic of the little guy but they already had him loaded up. What an adventure we had today!!

Ah, the fun of living in the back woods. That's pretty cool though, wish we could have seen the bull.
