If I can stop laughing long enough to write this now I’m sure it will keep me bursting out laughing for the next week or two. Maybe those city boys should have to take some FFA classes as part of their cop training. These stories always have me on the floor laughing and you get one every once in a while. And you would think animal control might have a better grasp of the situation. Couldn’t anyone find a bucked of corn or food? Bulls can be difficult for the inexperienced police officer to handle as they do not understand English and don’t know what to do when someone points a gun at them and starts yelling to get on the ground with your arms out.

Bulls aint that smart, however in standard cop mentality they must heard, force and dominate the situation. You can’t force a bull you must coax it and be smarter than the animal and it might not co-operate on your time schedule, it’s not going to comply with your orders instantly the way you demand of humans.

And then the icing on the cake I sure wish I would have been there to video tape it for you tube I bet the fire hose thing was hilarious. So this keystone cop show goes on for they didn’t say how long, the cops have FORCED the animal from where it was back to its owners yard.“They did everything they could to restrain the animal” restrain a bull, did they have a squeeze chute or any idea what they were trying to accomplish? And if they had gotten the animal “corralled in the owners yard” why couldn’t they just leave it there?

But they didn’t have any other choice and in the twisted mind of a control freak cop they never have any other choice but the course of action they have chosen. And to make the statement “They couldn’t leave it there. It would have been like leaving a dangerous pit bull in the street”.

They couldn’t leave it at its owner’s home? They force the return of property to the owner then decide they can’t leave the property in its current condition where it belongs? There is just something in this mentality that causes me to lose sleep at night knowing these fine well trained for any situation mastermind enforcers of the law are protecting us with their ‘Knowledge of all things’.

The bull "questioned their authority". No cop can let that alone. They'd kill us all for doing that if they could.

The article states ANIMAL CONTROL asked the cops to
shoot the bull. Why didn't Animal Control shoot the bull with a tranquilizer? Instead they make the police do the dirty work.

Hope the man who was gored by the bull recovers.

Did you even read the article? It says that Butte County is a crap hole and they can't afford the use of tranquilizers.

Thanks bob, thanks for telling it like it is. This story should make people ashamed to say they belong to the human race. Cops, fire fighters, animal control you should all be ashamed and leave butte county. I am not surprised CPS is not involved yet, dose the bulls owner have any children? How about the Department of water resources, there is a damn in Oroville and social services were they called in to investigate, in order to bolster their budgets as well?
I suppose you will confiscate the meat for your barbecue, but then you all want London broils I know and you only shot one bull.
Smart shoot it if you can't control it. No not smart not smart at all but to be expected of Mike Ramsey's crew. How many times did you shoot it? Did you all take a few shots so get your rocks off? Hoping to go home and get a better lay, with higher testosterone?

Unfortunately, most of our teachers come from Chico State and have even worse spelling skills. Tragic.

The Bull wasn't going anywhere on 4 Junes Way. A pick-up parked sideways on the little lane would have confined him. Just not my pick-up.

Leaving a dangerous bull on the street...(is)"like leaving a dangerous pit bull on the street"? Comments like this is what gives pit bulls their bad name. Why not a dangerous dalmatian or something due to the fact that they are more likely to attack their owners?
