The bull is currently stored with a local livestock contractor. If no owner comes forward the stray bull will be sold the next regular sale day at Red River Livestock, 6066 Hwy 1 Coushatta, LA.
The Owner, if found, will be responsible for all costs, catching, hauling, feed and care, as well as damages/mis-mate shots, etc., to the property owner.
