Believe it or not, this story isn't bullshit.
An NZ bull survived after being swept through a river and down a waterfall on an 80km adventure earlier this month.
The 18-month-old Hereford bull was swept away due to the extreme rain and flooding in the West Coast, and found himself in the Maruia River, before going over the 10-meter-high Maruia Falls (holy sh*t), into the Buller River, under O’Sullivan’s Bridge and nearly out to sea, Stuff reports.
Helluva journey for anyone, let alone a bull.
The bull's owner, Tony Peacock, unfortunately lost two other bulls in the flood, while his neighbour lost 74 cows, and many more farmers were affected by the extreme weather.
About a week later, Peacock got a call telling him that his bull had been found by a farmer in Westport, about 80kms from Peacock's farm.
“I rang [the farmer who found the bull] and he said he was getting his cows in in the morning when he heard a bit of rustling in the blackberry and a Hereford bull poked his head out,” Peacock said.
What an absolute legend of a bull.
