Rodeo Bull. Born in Longdale, Oklahoma, he was a cross-bred Charbray bull, dubbed as "The World's Most Dangerous Bull" ever in Professional Rodeo. Bodacious was a 1900 pound giant known for his trick of bringing his rear up with his head to the ground, forcing a rider to shift his weight forward, then lift his head up full force, smashing the rider's face. He started on the Rodeo circuit in 1992 and for four years, he was virtually almost un-ride able. He was first ridden in 1993 and it took two years before another bull rider stayed on for eight seconds. He was named PRCA Bull of the Year (1994-95), top bull of the National Finals Rodeo (1992, 1994-95) and bucked off 127 of his 135 riders before retiring in 1995. In retirement he made public appearances, starred in Bud Light beer commercials, plus had his own line of popular belt buckles and accessories. In 1999, he was inducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame. He died at the age of 12 in Addielou, Texas.
