KAHULUI, Hawaii, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- The Hawaii owner of a champion rodeo bull said she is trying to figure out how to remove a discarded truck tire from around the animal's head.

Paige De Ponte, owner of the Triple L Ranch on the island of Maui, said the bull, Skywalker, returned to the corral for water Tuesday and she noticed the tire stuck around his head, The Maui News reported Thursday.

"People seem to think that Kanaio is a dumping ground," De Ponte said.

She said Maui County recently cleaned public rights-of-way and "did a pretty good job," but they left behind several old tires.

De Ponte said the tire has been slowing Skywalker down and he appears to be in pain, but she is unsure of how to remove the tire from his head.
