2. catching wild cattle is a rare and dangerous occupation

I have been really lucky to know some good cowboys with these kinds of skills. That bull wasn't particularly wild, but it was 4 or 5 miles back to any corrals or other way to get him in a trailer and we just wanted him gone. When they won't stay home they have to go.

If I had found him he and managed to get him off their property I would have had to make him go all that way and bulls can be really hard to drive with out a bunch of cows to follow in. Even then they tend to want to run off or stay behind. Plus one of the tunnels the cattle use to go under the interstate is too short for a horse so it would have been tricky getting him past that and onto the next bigger one. So this worked out OK.
