BULL RIDING SHOTGUN

NORFOLK, Neb. — Around 10:00 a.m. Norfolk Police Division responded to a call of a man driving eastbound on 275 with a Watusi bull in his passenger’s seat.

“The officers received a call referencing a car driving into town that had a cow in it,” said Police Captain Chad Reiman. “They thought that it was going to be a calf, something small or something that would actually fit inside the vehicle.”

And the vehicle was big enough… Well, technically.

“As a result, the officers performed a traffic stop and addressed some traffic violations that were occurring with that particular situation,” Reiman said.

The occupant of the vehicle was identified as Lee Meyer of Neligh. The Watusi bull’s name was Howdy Doody. Lee was immediately pulled over by Norfolk Police as they performed a routine traffic stop.

“The officer wrote him some warnings,” Reiman said. “There were some citable issues with that situation. The officer chose to write him a warning and ask him to take the animal back home and leave the city.”

Meyer and Howdy Doody are on their way back home and no one was hurt.

5 MILLION BEES BUZZING AFTER FALLING OFF A TRUCK

August 30 (UPI) — Police in Ontario called in several beekeepers for backup when approximately 5 million bees fell off the back of a truck.

The Halton Regional Police Service said officers were alerted about 6:15 a.m. that several boxes of bees had fallen from the back of a truck on Guelph Line in Burlington.

“We’re not sure how or what exactly took place but at some point the boxes containing bees or beehives slid off the trailer and spilled all over the road,” police spokesman Ryan Anderson told CBC News.

Several local beekeepers were summoned to the scene to help gather the estimated 5 million bees.

Beekeeper Luc Peters said he and his fellow beekeepers had to be extra careful during their efforts because the insects were agitated.

“It’s important for people to understand that honey bees are fairly gentle and really don’t bother people unless they are bothered. This is a rare situation where you have to keep your distance from them,” he said.

Peters said locals can expect there to still be a large number of bees in the area for a few days.

“We’re going to be leaving some crates behind. Some of the bees have escaped and we’re hoping that they’ll naturally return to these crates and we’ll come back at a later date to pick them up once the bees have returned,” he said.

Police said the driver of the truck was cited for driving with an insecure load.

 

LION ON THE LOOSE IN PAKISTAN AFTER ESCAPING FROM A CAR

Aug. 30 (UPI) — A lion was on the loose for over an hour on the busy streets of Karachi, Pakistan, after escaping from a car.

Police and personnel from the Sindh Wildlife Department responded Tuesday when the big cat was spotted wandering the streets after escaping from a car.

Residents captured video of the lion wandering loose among vehicles and pedestrians. One video appeared to show the lion charging at a man, but the animal gave up its pursuit without injuring the bystander.

Police said the lion was recaptured by wildlife officials in the basement of a building after more than an hour on the loose. Authorities said the driver of the car that was transporting the lion has been detained.

Sindh Wildlife Department Conservator Javed Mehar said lions and similar animals are illegal in residential areas under wildlife laws, but there is a flourishing black market for them in the country. He said the owner of the lion could face a steep fine.

GOATS ROAM A CALIFORNIA NEIGHBORHOOD

Aug. 30 (UPI) — A California resident’s home security camera captured the moment hundreds of escaped goats stampeded through their neighborhood late at night.

Kristen Slowe, who lives in the Ring Mountain neighborhood of Corte Madera, shared Nest camera video showing hundreds of goats running past her house late at night.

The goats feasted on vegetation in the area and woke residents and pets with their ruckus, neighbors said.

The goat herd is contracted by the city to clear vegetation for fire abatement.
