Dairy bull goes missing following rucus with buffalo

MERCER, Pa. (AP) — A western Pennsylvania dairy farmer says a 2-year-old bull that went missing for a month was likely pushed over a fence by a friend’s pregnant buffalo.

Kevin Minor loaned out his 400-pound Watusi bull, “Lucky,” hoping it would mate with a friend’s buffalo near Mercer, about 60 miles north of Pittsburgh.

Minor now believes the buffalo angrily rebuffed the bull and knocked him over the fence. It turns out the buffalo was already pregnant and gave birth two days after Lucky arrived.

The bull was reported missing on July 14.

The (Sharon) Herald (http://bit.ly/1uLTw7D ) reported Thursday that the bull was located in some nearby woods a month later. Minor coaxed the bull back with a small group of cows which the farmer knew the bull liked.
