A Steer With Opposable Hooves?

Drivers along Highway 195, just north of Spangle, Washington were treated to an unusual sight Wednesday morning at about 7:15. An escapee was being led away while his gang protested and followed a few steps behind. Steakum the steer decided to make a midnight run from his pasture sometime Tuesday night or Wednesday morning. The escape left his owner wondering if Steakum has opposable hooves. As far as the life of a bovine is concerned, Steakum lives the life of luxury. He is tethered in a pasture where the green grass is thick and in some areas, taller than he is. Fresh water is delivered to him morning and evening. He enjoys a good scratching on his head and rubbing under his chin causes his eyes to roll back in his head, in pure pleasure. But if you've ever looked into the eyes of your favorite barbecue, you know there is more than just tenderloin, sirloin and… ribs/Brian Neale, KXLY. More here. (KXLY photo)
