When I first saw this photo I thought, maybe someone touched it up a bit with Photoshop. So, I did't a little research. A phone call to Kansas and a couple minutes on the phone with Jodie and we found out the rest of the story.

Some of the things you see when you thumb through your Facebook Newsfeed. Cheryl Odenbach had posted it on her Facebook so I thought I would share here. With a few details.

Seems this bull, had enough of the sales auctioneer and decided to jump the fence at the sale barn. Jodie with Kansas Cattlemen's Association said it was quite a jump that he made to get into the stands. There were a few moments of pandemonium until the bull could be safely tranquilized and removed from the sales seating area.

The bull jumping took place at a sale barn in Herington, Kansas at Herington Livestock Commission.  They're just south of Junction City, Kansas on Highway 77.

Jodie said there were a couple injuries involved in the incident but everyone is going to be fine.

Except maybe the bull. His next trip might have been dinner plate somewhere soon.

By the way, the Bulls are coming to town with The PBR. Details here.
