However, the injured bull began charging at first responders and other vehicles creating a dangerous situation."The bull became aggressive," Adams County Sheriff Ryan Zollman said. "The officers went to put the bull down for safety reasons."As deputies prepared to put down the injured bull with their firearms, the owner, identified as Jack Yantis, 62, of Council, Idaho, arrived on scene after being contacted through dispatch."The events that transpired over the course of the next few minutes are under investigation but, at this time, it is believed that two deputies and Mr. Yantis all fired their weapons," Idaho State Police wrote in a statement."The owner came down with a rifle. There's not much more I can say. It's under investigation," Zollman explained. "What I can say is both deputies involved and the owner all discharged firearms. Mr. Yantis was fatally wounded and pronounced dead at the scene."http://www.abcactionnews.com/news/idaho-state-police-investigating-officer-involved-shooting

Quote from: Dori on November 03, 2015, 01:17:25 AMMy cousin and I were chased by a bull once, while out exploring the neighbors farm (without permission). When we finally noticed him, he was snorting and pawing at the ground before he gave chase.

When he was young, he once had to drive a bull all the way across a field that way, so he could duck through the fence.
