Police, Pennsylvania farmer seeking missing bull

  • July 23, 2014

MERCER (AP) – It’s no bull.

State police and a western Pennsylvania cattle owner are looking for a 2-year-old bull that has been missing for more than a week.

Kevin Minor says the Watusi bull should be easy to spot: He’s about 400 pounds, with a solid red hide, and 3-foot-long horns.

Minor took the bull to a friend’s farm near Mercer, about 60 miles north of Pittsburgh, hoping it would mate with a buffalo there.

The man who owns that farm, Joe Gaburri, says the animal was running with three buffalo for about two weeks before it turned up missing July 14. Gaburri says the bull is docile and wouldn’t have jumped a fence, so he mowed his fields thinking he might find the bull’s body, but didn’t.
