As Gov. Brad Little and the largest crowds ever at that Famous Preston Night Rodeo watched top-notch cowboys rope, ride and race, JJ Harrison and Andy Seiler exchange witty barbs and the crowd raise their voices in competition, it was a bull that stole the show Thursday night.

After throwing his rider, the bull took off to the west side of the arena, eyed the fence and jumped. Shreiking fans parted as the bull balanced momentarily on the fence, and  cable broke, rocking him backwards and back into the arena.

Clowns jumped into action, distracting him from trying to escape again, and he was soon corralled behind the chutes where he belong. As fans found their way back to their seats, rodeo officials and volunteers found a fence panel, closed the gap and the show went on.
