Now, that is an oversized load.

It’s not every day you see a massive bull cruising shotgun down the highway, but it is in Nebraska.

On Wednesday, around 10 a.m. Norfolk Police Division responded to a call about a man driving down the highway with a Watusi bull in his passenger seat.

“The officers received a call referencing a car driving into town that had a cow in it.

They thought it would be a calf, something small or something that would actually fit inside the vehicle.”

Said Police Captain Chad Reiman.

When police performed a traffic stop to inspect what had been called in, they were surprised that the bull was far from a calf. The Watusi bull, appropriately named Howdy Doody, was full-grown, cruising in a modified sedan.

The car had half of its windshield removed and a modified roof so that Howdy could fit fully into the vehicle.

The passenger door had also been modified to have part of a cattle gate attached, giving the door extra height to secure Howdy’s body in the vehicle. On the door, there is a sign that says: “Nebraska’s BIG RODEO Parade – Best Car Entry.”

After being stopped, police officers chuckled at the scene.

Officers chose to give the man, Lee Meyer, a set of warnings and asked him to take Howdy Doody out of the city and back to his pasture home.

The cow looked relatively calm riding shotgun, but for his safety, it is best for Howdy to be transported in a proper livestock trailer in the future.

Those horns could do some damage on the highway…
