RAM WEIGHING 125 POUNDS
THRASHED BOVINE OF
Chicago—Here is the latest nature
fake from the Chicago stockyards. A
buck sheep, weighing perhaps 125
pounds, thrashed a hull, weighing
1,500 pounds, a few days ago. and
the thrashing was complete, the bull
retreating to a corner meekly enough
to permit the flaunting of a red flag
before him without resentment.
The bull, which was the bully ot
the stockyards, wandered close to a
car where several hundred shaep were
being unloaded. A particularly vicious
buck sheep ran down the runboard
and the bull wandered nlmlessly
toward it. The sheep drew back and
rushed, head downwards, at the bull.
The latter met the rush with surprise,
and the buck sheep drew back with
a grunt. Again the sheep charged
and again the bull lowered its head.
The two came together, the impact
driving the hull to Its knees. The
hull arose and, bellowing wildly,
charged at the sheep. The bucK drew
back and again banged into its
heavier and larger opponent The
bull again fell to its knees. These
charges were repeated eight or ten
times the bull growing weaker with
each succeeding one and the buck
seeming to get stronger.
Finally the bull turned and ran to
the other part of the yards. The
sheep returned to the pack. Conflicts
between buils are common at the
yards. Nearly every afternoon there
is a tight that would bring ancient
Romans to their feet. One story is
told where two heavy bulls fought for
an hour. One was finally beaten when
Its opponent caught it under the front
tegs and overthrew It
