Maui bull freed after giant tire stuck on his head

The Associated Press

KULA, Hawaii — A rodeo bull in Hawaii has been freed from a giant tire that was stuck on his head for about 20 hours.

The bull, named Skywalker, couldn’t eat or drink after he got his head lodged in the truck tire dumped at the Triple L Ranch in Maui. The tire weighs more than
50 pounds.

When the bull became exhausted enough to be approached, a ranch worker pried the tire off with a piece of wood.

Ranch owner Paige De Ponte says Skywalker seems fine now that he’s free from the rubber ring.

She doesn’t know how the tire ended up on Skywalker’s head but hopes his plight raises awareness about using the rural Kanaio area as a dumping ground.
