A mature bull has found a way to escape from his pen.
A video, showing the Belgian Blue animal using his tongue to unbolt the gate, was captured by the owner of KnedoStables.NL in recent days.
The footage was posted on the farm’s Facebook page, along with the caption: “If you’re tired of waiting for the farmer, you just open the door yourself.”
In 2011, Daisy, a cow on an Armagh-based farm, became a sensation after she learned the exact same trick.
The animal left farmer, Tom Grant, startled as every morning, he found the gate open and Daisy out grazing in paddocks with other cows.
He put the animals into their designated pens, secured by a gate every night, but could not understand why they were elsewhere the next morning. “I thought maybe there were boys trying to steal a heifer,” he told media.
