    When the Bull was Drowned

    The lady is from the Board of Agriculture Office. A bull has just been drowned as the men tried to tow it back from Cliatasay. It panicked and tried to get into the boat but its horns were large and nearly sank the boat, so the men were forced to loosen the rope and it drowned. The lady had come to verify the story and she took the horns and hide away.
