Nebraska cops say no ticket for motorist with big bull in passenger seat


Nebraska police let a car driver off with just a warning after he was spotted doing some truck-free cattle hauling.

Around 10 a.m. on Wednesday, August 30, the Norfolk Police Division responded to eastbound Highway 275 for a report of a motorist transporting a cow in a small white car.

“The officers received a call referencing a car driving into town that had a cow in it. They thought that it was going to be a calf, something small or something that would actually fit inside the vehicle,” Police Captain Chad Reiman told News Channel Nebraska.

The car was pulled over and police discovered that motorist Lee Meyer was transporting his Watusi bull Howdy Doody in a car with a rail fitted to the passenger side to accommodate the size of the animal.

Though police say that there were “citable” issues, Meyer was only issued warnings for the questionable livestock transport job.

Officers asked Meyer to return Howdy Doody to his home.
