sint truiden - In Sint-Truiden, Belgium, a (deck) bull has been stolen by a few thieves. That happens more often you would say, but in this particular case it does not seem to be amateurs, since it is a bull weighing about 700 kilos.
Owner Robert Guillams tells Het Belang van Limburg that the big beast in the Klein Gelmenstraat in Sint-Truiden has been stolen. At first Guillams thought that the bull itself had broken out. 'I have searched the whole area, but we have not found the bull. When we did not find an opening in the fence, we thought of theft. We immediately notified the police. '
He is therefore convinced that professional thieves have been at work. 'It is very difficult for strangers to catch such an animal in the pasture, and then you still have to get it into a trailer. These thieves knew what they were doing. '
The loss is estimated at 2500 euros.
