    Local celebrity dies

    Memorial to Lurch:

    I never saw him in person. He made the Guiness world record book and was on television several times.
    Died peacefully of cancer.

    He was actually an african watusi steer. Kind of a shame. Crossed with Longhorns might have produced some interesting offspring.

    Kinda hard to cross a steer with anything, though. Kinda tough getting them to breed.

    I like the related video showing Lurch and a water buffalo playing with a big hay bale. I can almost picture Lurch saying in his best Paul Hogan voice: "You call that a set of horns? Now THIS is a set of horns."
