Somewhere out in a paddock in Moss Vale, N.S.W. there is an embarrassed ghost just wishing it had suffered a more dignified end.
In 1932 a bullock was found dead under strange circumstances.
It seemed that the bullock had an itchy head and, as quadrupeds do, lifted a rear foot to scratch it.
Unfortunately, the bullocks demise was attributed to being suffocated when it couldn’t extricate itself from this position, the hoof becoming caught on a horn.
Yes, I know we shouldn’t laugh about an unfortunate end like this but I really would love to know what went through the bullocks mind when it realized its own foot was stuck on its head….
