    Good for the trooper! 9mm or bigger gun I wonder? Bulls are tough targets.

    No it must have been a .40S&W. Bull would not have stood a chance.

    Proper placement a 9mm is plenty. Easy to do on animal eating. A mean one, with injured people.....

    The officer's cojones were as big as the bull's that day. He could have gone his merry way to his home but choose to save a stranger's life.

    Hey, you mess with a bull Trooper, you get the horns, so to speak!

    Playing rodeo clown with a already angry bull takes some big brass ones.

    I think I would have gone straight to the lethal force and skipped all that distraction stuff.

    I wasn't there, but I believe the distraction was to physically get the bull off the victim. Take the bull out on top of the victim, then you have a very difficult situation trying to move it. Better to let it move itself...

    Agreed.

    Self sacrifice is what made this so brave. I’m sure if he coulda just shot it over the fence, he would have.

    a couple of 1 3/4 oz rifled slugs would get it done! Better than a 5.56mm for sure in that situation.
