Sometimes you need to call a cowboy instead of a cop.

You might remember awhile back the Temple policeman who tried to corral a bovine.

Well, the cops in Alabama decided to stay inside their vehicle. Probably a good idea.

This happened in Alabama back in July but the video was just posted recently. Facebook post report that police opened fire on the bull, who, allegedly was trying to get to another pasture to service a cow in heat.

But, a news story on 48 WAFF says it was the owners idea to put the bull down.

What ever the story, one thing is obvious, you don't want to mess with a horny bull.
