A "domesticated" bison allowed to roam in her owner's Texas home has moved to pastures new.

Bullet was transported from Karen Schoeve's home in Argyle, near Dallas, to her new home which she will share with two cows, 15 miles away in Flower Mound.

Ms Schoeve said she was struggling to balance work and looking after Bullet and her two paint ponies, so she sold the horses and two months ago advertised Bullet for sale on Craigslist for 5,960 dollars (£4,110). She told The Dallas Morning News she received several offers.

She describes Bullet, weighing in at more than 71 stone, as house-trained - although she sometimes treads mud inside.

Ms Schoeve says Bullet is "good hardy stock, but not scary" and has "a great personality".
