It's a cracker of a disappearing act - no bull

YOU wouldn't expect a bull to pull a Houdini.

But that's exactly what Harry Walker's $5500 bull has done and he hasn't been found.

Harry bought Crackerjack at the National Droughtmaster sale in September and has been searching for him ever since.

Harry left Crackerjack, who came from Dingo, at a property near Emu Park after the sales.

"He got out of the yard first night, so I brought in steers to give him some company," Harry said.

"The next day I noticed he was missing, and I couldn't work it out. There were no broken or stretched wires."

Harry went looking for his bull right away, even going up in a helicopter to have a look around.

"I searched for over an hour by chopper, and I rang the council, pound and police," he said.

Harry thought his bull would've been found by now as Crackerjack has lot number 488 painted on his side.

"I'm a hobby farmer," Harry said.

"I just have a small property with 100 cows at Milman; so $5500 is quite a loss. "Crackerjack got cracking and we just can't find him."

The disappearance has left Harry baffled.

"There's no tracks or anything. He's either ended up in someone's paddock and maybe they like the look of him and kept him, or he's in a paddock that no one musters regularly," he said.
