Bull sur­prises peo­ple at Dalby sa­le­yards

Chinchilla News - - BEST OF THE WEST - Michael Doyle

VISI­TORS to the Dalby sa­le­yards re­ceived an un­ex­pected wel­come as they ar­rived for sale last Wed­nes­day.

A new piece of art greeted ven­dors and buy­ers and left them pon­der­ing its ori­gins.

The bull was com­mis­sioned by coun­cil staff about two years ago, and has seem­ingly been for­got­ten.

Coun­cil­lor Ray Brown says he would in­quire about how and why the bull ended up at the sa­le­yards.

“This never came across the Dalby sa­le­yards com­mit­tee, so I am ask­ing the CEO why the bull is here,” Cr Brown said.

Mayor Paul McVeigh said the bull cost coun­cil $4000, in­clud­ing in­stal­la­tion and there was a pos­si­ble ex­pla­na­tion.

“Un­for­tu­nately the artist we got to com­plete this piece of art had fallen ill, so that de­layed the project by at least a year,” he said.
