  • Lee Meyer took his Ankole-Watusi bull for a ride in his specially-modified car
  • Officers pulled the pair over after reports of a cow in the passenger seat 

Police pulled over a driver on a Nebraska highway with an unusual passenger – a massive Watusi bull called Howdy Doody.

The officers had been tipped off about the bizarre duo by other drivers who said they saw a cow in the passenger seat on August 30.

This turned out to be a huge Ankole-Watusi bull. The owner, Lee Meyer, of Neligh, had cut half off half of the roof, windows and windscreen of the former police car to fit his companion. 

On the side of the car he had attached a sign saying: Nebraska’s Big Rodeo Parade – Best Entry’. 

The car also had a miniature-version of Howdy Doody’s big horns attached to the hood of the car.

Unfortunately, Howdy Doody seemed to have gotten a bit nervous during the car ride on the highway, as a spray of his poo ran over the back windows when police pulled the car over

Norfolk Police Division Captain Chad Reiman explained: ‘The officers received a call referencing a car driving into town that had a cow in it.

‘They thought that it was going to be a calf, something small or something that would actually fit inside the vehicle.

‘As a result, the officers performed a traffic stop and addressed some traffic violations that were occurring with that particular situation.’

Meyer is said to be a regular with Howdy Doody at local cattle shows and parades.

Captain Reiman added: ‘The officer wrote him some warnings.

‘There were some citable issues with that situation. The officer chose to write him a warning and ask him to take the animal back home and leave the city.’

Meyer and Howdy Doody were then let go to return home to Neligh. No one was hurt because of the unusual passenger in Meyer’s car.
