Agriculture museum gets new bull, named Hercules, after death of Goody
Former bull Goody, a museum favourite among visitors, died on Canada Day
More than four months after the death of their beloved bull Goody, the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum has welcomed a new bull into the fold.
Hercules, a Hereford bull, weighs about 2,200 pounds and was born in 2011. He comes to the museum from a farm in Kingston, Ont.
The museum looked at several bulls before deciding on Hercules, whose temperament is calm enough for the museum's needs.
(As a bonus, he also has some very pretty curls on his head.)
Now, the search begins for a mate for Hercules.
Anyone interested in meeting Hercules up close can do so at the museum starting on Wednesday.
