Rookie Bull ‘Party Bus’ Stirs Drama with Spectacular Arena Break at Oregon Rodeo


The quiet and quaint town of Portland, Oregon was the setting for a truly momentous event last weekend when a debuting bull named Party Bus, pulled off a Hollywood-style stunt and sent local rodeo aficionados into an exhilarating frenzy.

Party Bus, a three-year-old bucking bull, intended to carve his legacy following in his father Short Bus’s footsteps. Little did his owner — local rancher Mike Corey — know that his charge would end up making national headlines not because of his rodeo prowess, but for an unforeseen incident that disrupted an otherwise normal day at the rodeo.

The peaceful ambiance of the central Oregon rodeo arena was dramatically shattered when Party Bus broke the confines of his pen and hurdled straight over the fence of the venue. The spectacle continued as the bull stormed through the bustling concession area, sounding a siren of panic among the attendees, and unintentionally injuring three stunned individuals in the process.

Corey, the bull’s owner, expressed his dismay and surprise at the bull’s unexpected arena escape. He explained that this was Party Bus’s maiden foray into a crowd of such magnitude and thus, his animal had not intended to inflict harm.

“Party Bus caught us all off guard when he abruptly vaulted out of the ring. It’s not an everyday phenomenon, and thankfully so. I had no clue he would take to his heels,” Corey told The Associated Press.

Witness footage from the Sisters Rodeo bore testimony to Party Bus’s agility – he made a beeline through the crowd, rose onto his hind legs, and tossed a woman into the air with his horns. His short adventure concluded when he weaved his way back to the livestock holding pens, where alert rodeo professionals swiftly contained the bull, averting further potential chaos.

The fire chief of the Cloverdale Rural Fire Protection District, Thad Olsen, disclosed that the bull’s daring escapade spanned a mere thirty-second time frame. “We had a close call. It’s a relief that we had only three individuals sustaining relatively minor injuries, it could have been much worse,” expressed Olsen, pointing out that one person had a broken arm, another sustained head and neck injuries, while the woman tossed in the air was fortunate to have the least serious injuries of all.

For Corey, this extraordinary incident resulted in a tinge of disappointment as the bull’s introductory rodeo was unfortunately also to be his curtain call. Descended from a lineage of prize-winning bulls, Party Bus was reared with the sole intention of joining the esteemed lineup of bucking superstars.

Although Corey expressed an affinity toward providing Party Bus a second chance to prove his worth, pragmatism persuaded him against it. Now, owing to the untoward incident, Party Bus has been “condemned”, according to professional rodeo regulations, and will no longer be allowed participation in any future rodeos.

Henceforth, Party Bus will be trotting around the comfort of Corey’s sprawling eastern Washington ranch, endowing his offspring with his genetic legacy in hopes that they, in turn, will evolve into “superstar athletes” to bask in rodeo glory.

Close to his heart, Corey concludes, “Party Bus is a magnificent creature. He remains a priceless asset, as his progeny promises a bright tomorrow in the world of rodeo.”
