Champion PBR bull proves he's tougher than any cowboy

Sold out crowd at California Rodeo Salinas

Bushwhacker the Bull makes history

SALINAS, Calif. - He's one giant ton of muscle, strength and has quite the temper.

A sold out crowd of nearly 10,000 people Wednesday night sat on the edge of their seats watching the professional bull riders take on some nasty bulls, including one of the meanest-- the bucking bull named Bushwacker.

Spectators witnessed history when the World Champion bull bucked World Champion Mike Lee off in roughly 5 seconds.

Bushwacker is retiring after the PBR World Finals this fall.

This is the PBR's Touring Pro Division Tour in Salinas. Attendance was up by 773 tickets from 2013 numbers.

The PBR continues to be one of the most popular events held during Big Week each year.

The champion of the main event was Tim Bingham from Utah with a total of 171 points on two bulls.

Second place went to Jordan Hupp with 168 points.
