Bulls Don’t Take Bull

KINTA, Okla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Bulls don’t take bull from anyone – including humans.

Just ask Austin Meier, a professional bull rider who stars on the new TV special, Posse: The Young Guns Of PBR, premiering Saturday (Dec. 12) on CMT.

Meier says that if you mess with the bull, you get the horns.

Since they’re huge, bulls aren’t exactly afraid of their wranglers.

There’s no way for a professional rider to “psyche out” a bull before saddling up because the animals are bigger and stronger.

The beasts are known to have their own personalities, with a few playing “trashy and dirty.”

Still, being bucked off has its perks.

Meier says most young bull riders have no problem getting dates – if they’re conscious.

He’s seen a fellow rider break his neck on the job and he himself once had his jaw broken in two places when a bull stepped on his face.
