Miss­ing Mull bull re­turns to farm …but where he went re­mains a mys­tery

The Oban Times - - News -

A BULL that went miss­ing for more than three weeks has turned up and been found hap­pily graz­ing with his cows.

A search had been mounted when Founder of Chapel­ton, which is owned by Richard de Klee of Auch­nacraig at Lochdon on the Isle of Mull, first went miss­ing. Ev­ery­one had given up hope of ever find­ing him.

Mr de Klee ex­plained: ‘ We had so much help in look­ing for the bull. Our stocks­man was out look­ing, the Coast­guard helped, as did our neigh­bours and friends, and no- one could find him. We even put a drone up.

‘ We also re­ported him miss­ing to the po­lice and the Bri­tish Cat­tle Reg­is­ter.

‘ So we were amazed when he fi­nally turned up. He is four years old and we have had two suc­cess­ful crops from him.’

Mr de Klee’s fam­ily have worked the farm at Lochdon for more than 150 years.

He said: ‘ He must have been hid­ing in a cave or some­thing.’

The miss­ing bull re­turned of his own ac­cord.
