NORFOLK, Nebraska — Police had to pull over a vehicle Wednesday when they noticed it had a rather large steering problem.
More specifically, there was a large Watsui bull, named Howdy Doody, sitting in the passenger seat of the car as it drove down a highway, News Channel Nebraska reports.
“The officers received a call referencing a car driving into town that had a cow in it,” Police Captain Chad Reiman tells News Channel Nebraska. “They thought that it was going to be a calf, something small or something that would actually fit inside the vehicle.”
It was something much larger, as video of the traffic stop shows. The video shows the Ford sedan had been modified, with a portion of its roof cut off, to make room for the bull.
Police gave Lee Meyer, the owner of the vehicle and the bull, some warnings, then sent them home, reports say.
