Meet 'Knickers' - The Biggest Bovine You've Ever Seen
We've witnessed some things in our time - but this is udderly unbelievable!
At some 1,400kg (220st) and 194cms (6ft 4in) high, Western Australia born steer (which is a male bovine that has been neutered) 'Knickers' is believed to be the tallest in Australia - and one of the tallest in the world.
And his size has proved to be his saving grace. When owner Geoff Pearson tried to put him up for auction last month, this hunk of meat was too big for buyers to handle - so Knickers avoided the abattoir.
Have a MOOch:

"When he was young, when we first got him, we had a Brahman steer (another breed of cattle) which was a friend of his," explains Mr Pearson. "So his name was Bra... so we had 'Bra' and 'Knickers'".
The Hosltein Friesian was first bought as a "coach" - a steer that leads other cattle - at the age of about 12 months, but kept on growing over time.
He's a hit with the other cattle, who follow him around the paddocks in their hundreds.
I'm just wondering - how in the name of God Father Ted would be able to explain this to Dougal??
