Bull invades pitch at junior football match

Published Add your comment

There were a number of talking points in the world of football throughout the course of the weekend; Barcelona thumped Getafe by six goals to nil while Dimitri Payet scored a wonderful goal for West Ham United at Old Trafford, but it appears that one moment has well and truly surpassed all others. 

Right, so here it is: in Queensland, Australia, a bull took to the field at a junior football match...

Not only did the bull enter the field of play, it also charged at the young players, who quickly ran for cover.

Thankfully, the bull failed to take any of the youngsters down at Federation Park and eventually returned to the bushland. 

Anyway, the reason you're here...Ryan Devenish, who was watching his nephew in action, managed to capture the moment and posted the video on Facebook, stating: "Things got a little interesting... today."

The details 

In the aftermath of the incident, Mr Devenish, as reported by ABC, explained exactly what happened during the match.

He stated: "It stared at me and actually had a charge at me for about five feet, and then stopped and turned around and went back in the bush.

"It was going down the sidelines looking for an opening in the fence so it could get back through. I could see it was getting frustrated and I thought 'something is going to happen here'.

"I started filming again and sure enough that's when it ran on the field and started chasing that poor young fellow."

Following the incident, Mr Devenish has also revealed that he has been getting messages from a variety of media outlets.

"It's been crazy to be honest," Mr Devenish said.

"I have been getting messages from ESPN sports centre in the US and also NBC News."

"I'm sure [the players] would have been looking over their shoulder," he said.

"I'm pretty positive the ref wouldn't have pulled out his red card after that."

It's fair to say that the bull has captured the imagination of us all.
