Meet Knickers, a cow so big he wouldn't fit in the slaughterhouse


When Karl Schoenrock saw the viral photo of Knickers, a six foot four inches tall steer, towering over a herd of cattle, he made a decision to bust out the measuring tape. The bovine won over social media after photos and videos of its towering over a herd of cattle surfaced.

And Dozer never lords his size over the other animals, Schoenrock said. "You start scratching him and he'll just push into you just to get more scratches, and he loves it".

Like Knickers from down under, Dozer was saved from the slaughterhouse, Schoenrock said.

"Dozer's quite the gentle giant", he said. In fact, Dozer ended up at Schoenrock's farm - an animal sanctuary and petting farm - when a vegan woman named Rebecca Hanuschuk bought and saved the then-6-month-old calf from a beef-producing farm in Alberta.

Knickers looms above the thousands of other cattle that he feeds with in rural Western Australia.

New Trailer For Runaways Season Two Hints at MCU Connection
Also seen in the trailer is our first look at Topher, the mysterious new acquaintance of the Runaways who has a secret of his own. Gert Yorkes (Ariela Barer), and Molly Hernandez ( Allegra Acosta ) want to stop their evil parents, the Pride.

The massive Holstein-Friesian is believed to be Australia's biggest steer, weighing approximately 3,086 pounds.

Neither animal is a cow, however.

The steer - a castrated bull whose job is to "steer" young cows - came in at just a little taller than 6-5.

Dozer still remains 2 inches short from the Guinness World Record for tallest living steer.
