He sprinted for about half a mile and only escap ed by a wonderful leap over a five-foot fence. Next evening, on his home ward journey, Casey carried a hod with him to serve as a weap on should he again encounter the bull. This time however, the bull was absent. Only a playful, harmless calf was in sight ap proaching it, the vindictive Ca Bey gave it a sharp blow with his hod, at the same time exclaiming excitedly : "Take that, and tell your fath er Patrick Casey done it!"
