A Bull Story
This story comes from Bob West over in the West Springs community. Bob had just purchased a Jersey bull. They are known to be mean.
Sheriff David Taylor likes cows and bulls and went to Bob’s house to take a look at the new bull. Bob advised Sheriff Taylor that he could not go into the pasture because Jersey bulls are mean. The sheriff advised Mr. West that his badge would allow him to go anywhere and he entered the pasture anyway.
The bull got after the sheriff and was chasing him back towards the barn. The sheriff was screaming “Help, help, this bull is chasing me!”
Bob West hollered to the sheriff, “Show him your badge!!”
