Cattle wrangling on Skye

Texans are no strangers to cattle ranching. In 1995 Texas had the most farm/ranch land, as well as cattle, in the nation. Though the scale of cattle production on the Isle of Skye is quite a bit smaller, the crofters on the island are just as invested in their livestock. The article below details how most of the firefighters on the island recently came to the rescue of one local bull. Coincidentally, the bull is featured prominently in the MacLeod of Harris crest.
