Cartoon of the Week

Cartoon by Terry O'Neill


This powerfully built 1600-pound bucking bull, named for the black patch around his left eye, and like a real pirate, championed the idea of freedom.  Pirata bolted from the Bucking Bulls Ranch located at the corner of Springfield and Willow Bend  Road in Geneva Township, around 5:30 pm Sunday.  It isn’t often one sees a bull running loose, however according to the Town of Geneva Police, they get calls regarding loose or running animals more often than you would think.  Sunday evening, Pirata, either looking for greener grass or his two minutes of fame, made it over Interstate 43, and headed for highway NN east of Elkhorn, where he spent the night presumably in a cornfield.  Monday morning, Pirata was seen in a field behind Lakeland School.  At approximately high noon, the owner and a ranch hand from Bucking Bulls Ranch, on horseback, lassoed the big bull and trailered him back to the ranch where GSR reporters caught up to him.  Pirata was unharmed, and caused no damage, as far as we could tell, and was placed back into his little stall where he appeared to be pouting like a scolded child.
