Giant Steer Towers Over Herd in Australia
Holy cow! A gigantic six-foot, four-inch tall steer in Australia was saved from the slaughterhouse thanks to its size.
The 3,000-pound Holstein Friesian, named Knickers, towers over the other cattle in the herd and is too big to slaughter. "It was too heavy. I wouldn't be able to put it through a processing facility," Owner Geoff Pearson told Perth Now. "So I think it will just live happily ever after."
Pearson has kept Knickers as a coach for the other bovines. The gargantuan steer has been unofficially named the biggest in Australia. Guinness World Records lists the largest steer in the world as a 6.6-foot-tall Chianina ox in Italy.
