At approximately 10 a.m. on Wednesday, an officer with the Norfolk Police Department pulled over a sedan traveling eastbound on Highway 275 for having an unusually large Watusi bull in the passenger seat.
The driver had modified the passenger side of their vehicle by cutting out the roof and windshield, creating an opening large enough to fit a large bull.
A metal guardrail was installed to secure the animal within the car.
News Channel Nebraska reported, “The occupant of the vehicle was identified as Lee Meyer of Neligh. The Watusi bull’s name was Howdy Doody. Lee was immediately pulled over by Norfolk Police as they performed a routine traffic stop.”
“The officers received a call referencing a car driving into town that had a cow in it,” Norfolk Police Division Captain Chad Reiman explained. “They thought that it was going to be a calf, something small, or something that would actually fit inside the vehicle.”
“As a result, the officers performed a traffic stop and addressed some traffic violations that were occurring with that particular situation,” Reiman said.
“The officer wrote him some warnings,” Reiman added. “There were some citable issues with that situation. The officer chose to write him a warning and ask him to take the animal back home and leave the city.”
