The bull

Julie Bille, Denmark, 2003

12 min.DK/Short fiction

On a chilly morning an old hunter passes the farm of his old friend Preben. The wind blows the gates open and reveals a terrible tableau in the yard. The day before, Preben's wife has left him with their boy. With his family gone, his pride is overwhelming: The bull stands there solid as a rock. The hunter reaches for his gun, but a bull like this is hard to kill.
