Bull stuck in tire at an Iowa ranch

(NBC) -

Video of a bull stuck in a huge tire at a ranch in Hartley, Iowa is going viral. 

The 19-second video posted to Weeping Fox Ranch's Facebook page shows the large bull standing stoically in a field, the even larger tire stuck around its midsection, as a glorious sun sets in the background.

At one point, he glances around to his right, as if to say, "Um, OK, get this thing off me." 

"Don't know how he did it ... and I don't know how it's coming off," the woman who captured the video, Kris Vogel, is heard saying.

The Weeping Fox Ranch said on Facebook that two people tied up the bull and pulled the tire back and down his legs until he stepped out of it. He was fine. 

The ranch says he's a show bull, and chalked his antics up to animal nature. "Bulls will be bulls and play with things they often shouldn't," the ranch responded to one Facebook commenter. 

The video has nearly 12,500 shares and 650,000 views since it was posted to Facebook July 7.
