Shot in 1898. Never been one bigger since. Which kind of amazes me. You would think that a hunderd years is plenty of time. I guess not though.

This one here was shot a young gentleman by the name of Mickey Free, who was all of 19 years old when he killed it.

Cost that boy his right eye.

Seems that as he was going up to it, to dress it, it reared up and gouged his face. Wasn't dead yet.

Seems right, somehow. Animal like that.

Everything got a cost to it.
