Comments / pictures

1968: "At that time her oldest calf was a son called “Little Male”, supposedly born in 1968."

1983: "By 1983 Little Male was spending less than 20% of his time with the family and thus
by our definition he was considered independent."

2017: Shot and killed by the authorities because it was suspected he had killed a farmer.
