Bull's wrong turn for freedom
A bull went through the wrong gate and wandered around the competitor's area at the Waimate Rodeo on Saturday.
Secretary Craig Booth said this morning that the bull had been in the arena and bucked a comboy before it ''snuck out a gate and went to the contestant's parking area''.
No one was hurt and a cowboy lassooed the beast before it was put back in the arena for another round of rodeo.
Mr Booth said the animal ran into a gate and broke a post in the process. The gate was temporarily fixed and competition continued.
There would not be an investigation, he said.
''It was a second division bull that got disoriented. He got a bit lost, and decided he wanted to go home.''
