This is the vid of tying up one of the scrub bulls. The bull has been chased by the bull catcher, the 4wd you can hear ticking over and see parked where it hit the bull. The bloke tying the back legs and doing the talking is Jason, an Aboriginal man who in this vid is catching for the money but also training some young blokes to keep them off the grog and the hooter (dope). The bigger bloke is Brett a mate of ours who wanted to have a go.
The bull is knocked over. In this case one Aboriginal boy has the tail but he is pretty casual about it because Brett is pulling the back legs back far enough to keep the bull off balance. Jason ties the back legs and then moves to the head, jams his foot on the bottom horn to limit head movement and then tells another yopung bloke where to stand and how to tie etc. Some of what Jason is saying is in the local Aboriginal language and some is in English. See if you can guess the English words...
Once the legs are strapped, that's it.
Some of the noise at the beginning is the chopper moving off to get more bulls and you can see the straps hanging off the roll bar of the bull catcher...
All this stuff I'm telling you blokes is real. It's no bloody joke putting your hands on a live scrub bull.

Note too that it is not the bull catcher holding the bull down. They just bumop them off their feet. It is the men stopping the bull getting up and killing us all. Hence the urgency of some of Jason's instructions...

Have a look at the look on the bulls face at the start of the video when he is looking at me. That's why I went around the back of the vehicle...

Australians (in the bush anyway) don't necessarily do things because of money. There is a guts element that the blokes like to test. We think differently to other people...

f*****g mental!! thats somthing live catching um. whilst out pig hunt do the dogs ever stray off on to the bulls ? Also do you ever hunt the dingos are they a big pest/predator to the livestock farmers?
Thanks for the responses fellas. Re chasing the bulls with dogs. In Oz the vast majority of pig dogs are single species hunters. They get shot if the catch livestock either by the landholder or by their owners. It's a big sin here if a pig dog grabs a sheep or a cow or anything other than a pig. Mostly you are hunting through proper domestic stock so the dogs just have to ignore them. Good dogs will run into a mob of , say, black Angus calves and ignore them to grab the boar hiding in the middle of them.
There are blokes who catch scrub bulls with dogs but those dogs can't be used around domestic cattle in the main.
We don't hunt wild dogs because there aren't many around here. Thje dingo fence keeps most out of NSW and half of Queensland . If you lose a pig dog in dingo country, especially in the hills, the dingoes tend to mob up on the dog and kill it. But I know one pro dog trapper (Measles, so called because he has freckles...) who had a rough dog that loved catching wild dogs and killing them. We called him a stag type, ie a hairy running dog.
