You know that feeling you get when you walk into a Target? Petco is just like that, but for our pets. The store has a generous “all leashed pets are welcome” policy, so any and all creatures can enjoy its endless selection of toys and sprays and water bowls. Including, apparently, enormous bulls.
A man in Texas decided to test the limits of Petco’s leashed animal policy by leashing his 1,600-pound steer and taking him into the store for a visit.
Vincent Browning says he thought the policy was a “bluff.” But he brought his enormous African Watusi steer, Oliver, into the store, and guess what? The policy IS NOT A BLUFF. The Petco employees were delighted to greet and pet Oliver, despite his 9 and a half foot horns (!!!).
“They welcomed Oliver the African Watusi with open arms,” Vincent said on Facebook.
“People couldn’t believe it. The whole staff there was really nice about it and excited,” he told USA Today.
The whole encounter was captured on video, and it’s pretty stunning. The Petco employees are so calm and happy to see this giant creature, and Oliver is totally chill about the adventure!
He somehow managed to maneuver his massive horns into the store without knocking a single thing over. He deserves 500 treats for that alone.
