Over the weekend, a semitrailer packed with 32 bulls being driven by drivers Travis Carr and Bryan Martin BANGED into a tree on the I-75 in Florida, and three bulls escaped — which led to a chase down and unfortunately a shooting of the animals.
The bulls that stayed inside the trailer were transported into another truck with portable metal fences by cowboys and veterinarians.
Florida Highway Patrol Master Sgt. Nick Causey said:
“The semi was southbound and, from what people told us, a tire blew out. It ran onto the shoulder and into the treeline, which ripped the trailer. Several of the cows got out and were along the shoulder. It could have been dangerous but there were no other accidents.”
Martin noted that he and Carr were hauling the bulls from Evant, Texas, to Indiantown.
After the accident, Travis was sadly hospitalized, but Bryan came out without a scratch.
Only good thing about this CRAY occurrence is that no one else got hurt!!
