This year’s Big 4 Canoe Mountain Rodeo included a surprise event when a dog escaped his owner’s grasp and charged a bull in the ring (see above). The small dog narrowly missed being trounced and after a few seconds returned to its owner unharmed (see VCTV video below). Below left: Tristan Brackman of Barriere holds on tight.

Bottom right: Jean Osadchuk, Jean Froescul and Dee McEachern enjoy the events. / COURTESY VCTV
