Texas man tests Petco’s ‘All leashed animals welcome’ policy with giant steer

Petco has a policy that states all leashed pets are welcome - and one rancher chose to put the policy to the test.

This docile African Watusi steer named Oliver receives a very warm welcome at a Texas Petco store.

An attempt to call management's bluff at the Petco in the Northeast Houston suburb of Atascocita.

Video showed the steer being led into the store, before employees greeted the animal and Browning and posed for photos. Nearly none, we'd reckon-especially the rather exotic Ankole-Watusi, known as the "Cattle of Kings" (for its extremely regal horns) and heir to a lineage that dates back more than 6,000 years, from Egypt to Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi, on to the European zoos of the 1800s, and finally to the United States.

Once the pre-order campaign is over and the bundle is no longer available, the prices are likely to go down. By now we must know pretty much everything there is to know about the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro .

When two Texans found out that the popular pet store Petco supposedly welcomes all leashed pets in their stores, they made a decision to put that rule to the ultimate test.

The staff members were reportedly "super friendly and courteous".

"We mean it when we say ALL leashed pets are welcome in our stores", the store said on Facebook. To their surprise, Oliver the African Watusi was welcomed with "open arms".

His post, with pictures of the huge steer, wearing a leash, has since earned more than 9,500 "shares" and over 2,000 amazed comments.
