My question is, with all that flab on him, how can he be "Chilli"?

Didn't look like any flab on that beast to me.

Yeh, they were just dropped off. Can you imagine?.......
........early morning, not quite dawn, your S.O. nudges you,
"Hon, do you hear that", "yeh, hon. It's just my stomach growling. Go back to sleep."
"No, dear. It's coming from outside".
"Oh, for the love of. I'll go check it out. I gotta get up
anyway in a minute."
So you slip on your scuffies, grab the flashlight, and shuffle out the front door, down the steps, then.........
weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, sssllliiiidddddddeeeeeee and down, wack!!!!!!!
WHAT THE???????????????


MMMMOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWW

HONEY>>>COULD YOU COME OUT HERE A MINUTE.........

Is this him? (did a Google for Chilli bull) Because if it is, this picture looks fake... was there a video on the Today Show? Gonna check YouTube I guess.

Here's a link. They seem fairly real and having been in the graphics business for 10 years I can usually tell a fake picture.....but even I can be fooled.

No, not flab, but there is a lot of meat on those bones to keep him warm at night.

Could be him, Jen. When they interviewed the lady who owns him, he stood way above her head. Our son is 6' 6" and towers over me and I'm 5' 8".

As for a video, they spent quite a few minutes interviewing his owner. I can't remember her name right now I was so amazed at how big the bull was. She said his sister, dropped off with him, was somewhat smaller. Maybe you could go to the Today Show's website and find the interview.

I looked for a video of the show segment and came up with this. Scroll down to the day's stories or go to the "Pets" section and click on the first entry. Pretty interesting. Where's the beef?

YEs, YES, YES, that's him!!! He was 6' 6" I think or something close to it. He did move around and Matt Lauer made a joke 'cause another regular sized bull was behind him and it looked as though "Chilli" was 2 headed for a moment.
But he's real.

Thanks! Wow! He's enormous. I wonder if it's something like a tumor affecting growth hormone like what happens with humans with acromegaly.
