"BULL"

Largest Oxen in the World
Right - Mt. Katahdin and Left - Granger, their combined weight 9800 pounds
Bred and owned by Mr. A.S. Rand of Stetson, Maine
Photo taken August 24, 1930
I don't remember the relationship in our family tree but my brother has the original picture in it's frame that has been passed down through the family. Photo is probably 3' x 4' as I remember it hanging over the bar in our family room as a kid along with the cattle prod that you see in the photo.

Great pic! I'm an archivist and I work with photos all the time. Live near the Wichita Mt. Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma, and those two look like the size of our bison!
