Unable to bear separation from its companion, a bull in India gave chase to a mini-truck carrying a cow who was sold off to someone else by its owner in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
A video of the agitated temple bull circling the mini truck, sticking its head against the vehicle and then chasing it has gone viral on social media. It also shows the helpless cow looking at the bull, who is trying its best to stop the vehicle through the grill. As the vehicle departs the place for a new destination, the bull chases it for about a kilometre.
