So we had a mess today. My biggest Pierre David bull found a roll of wire some damn place and wrapped himself up in it. Took all day to get to where we could safely knock him out but we eventually did. It was quite the mess but he seems ok now. We’ll know how well he recovered in the morning. We’re praying he stays upright on all fours. Last we saw him he had sobered up quite a bit and rejoined the herd. It took about an hour before he was back up on his feet and sure footed. I got pretty concerned about his body temp while he was out but we kept him cool as we could and the reversal started working in about 8 minutes.
It is extremely rare that I will step in But this particular animal is extremely rare, the herd sire (he’s still young but is breeding), and this was a man made issue not a situation where nature is taking its course.
He’s down and the wire cutting begins

We got it all cut off and gave him the reversal

8 minutes later he’s awake but really confused

15 minutes later he’s on his feet a little drunk still but recovering well.

That's great. Lucky it wasn't barb wire. Could have been a real disaster to such a fine bull. May he have a long and happy life.
 
Hopefully the does he breeds pass on better sense to their offspring!
 
So what your saying is that bull just got the full Gizmo experience? Woke up confused, not knowing where the hell he is and still quite drunk!
 
Beautiful animal, glad everything worked out.
 
All is well that ends well

Lmao. And his ass hurt from being shot with a dart.
 
Great news!!! Not sure if his pride was not hurt from waking up dazed, confused and sticky. LMAO!!!!
 
That deer is just now turning 4 so he’s got a long way to grow up still. He won’t really start filling out for 2 more years. When he reaches maturity he should look similar to these deer.

I’m sure it is and I guarantee his butt is sore as hell from being shot with that dart.
 
So what about Tuesday? Glad you worked it out!!
 
Seen cattle & horses do some serious damage to themselves with barb wire, glad it worked out !

Sounds like it made for quite the day. I like their racks.

That is a rare deer, where did you get yours from (if I may ask), Mexico ?

Glad he´s fine (y)
