    This is almost as liberal as the article yesterday – what! Person injured while walking in between 2 bisons fighting over a female. How stupid can it get ? ANSWER – WATCHING THE DEMOCRATIC DEBATES – Morons wanting to be in charge of our lives. Just read where Kamila Hairazz while a government prosecutor sent 1500 people to jail for smoking weed and said she went home a lit up a joint. Could it get any crazier ? Yes! just vote democrap.

    By dispatched they mean kill, right? Why don’t they just say they killed the raging bull?

      They can’t say they “killed” the aggressive bull, because all the snowflakes would have their feelings hurt.

    they shot a bull for being aggressive. geez. im from iowa been on farms my whole life. never met a non aggressive bull before. maybe we shouldnt shoot animals for their nature. mybe we as human beings and higher life forms should be held somewhat accountable? the bull just did what a bull did. man who probably wasnt much of a runner at his age shouldnt have been out there in the first place. its tragic and i know that. but we as a society are losing the conceot of personal responsibility. we blame the bull for being a bull, we blame the gun for the actions of man we dont blame phyzer for the heroin epidemic we blame broken homes, we dont blame liberals for their terrorist behavior we blame hate speech. we dont blame meth heads for making themselves meth heads. it just seems like people dont enjoy facing the facts. without emotion and pure logic 60 year old men shouldnt be getting into enclosures with 2500 lb horny animals, who let him do that?
