I’m here [pistolet tranquillisant], Looking for it and I’m hunting cows in Indiana Jones movie ‘. It was frustrating. The longer it lasts, the more you wonder what will happen. ”
The bull roams over a part of Long Island where there is an expansion of dense undergrowth and pine trees. Mr Floridia said the dense vegetation search was hampered.
They suggested transferring the bull to the sanctuary.
“I’m not afraid he’s aggressive towards humans,” Floridia said. It has no horns, it is not an aggressive animal. I think he’s going to see people and he will run away. I was terrified of the color of his coat, that he would lose a road in the dark and that the driver would not see him. ”
