    All I could think of while watching that story is.............WoW..........they really should clean that pool up. Nobody but the bull wants to swim in that water.

    My wife's thoughts exactly. We were more focusing on the awful water than the bull.

    They did have it covered, you can't see it in the video but the bull was tangled in the winter cover. Bull just opened it early for them!

    No mention of any damage to the pool. That is what I kept wanting to know.

    It looks like a vinyl pool. Maybe the winter cover protected the liner while he was splashing about. I wonder how the steps held up under 2 tons of bull!
