‘Doctor Proctor,’ the Bull Who Bucked Nearly Everyone Who Tried Him, Has Died

He was the bull known simply known as K24 until he earned his rodeo name, “Doctor Proctor,” by head-butting Shane Proctor. Someone shouted “Proctor needs a doctor” and the name stuck.

Until the age of 2, Doctor Proctor roamed the mountains of Washington. He was so wild that they had trouble getting him in the chute in the beginning.

He was owned by Rod Chumley from Selah in the beginning. Chumley teamed up with Gary Long from G.S. Long. They loaded Doctor Proctor into the trailer and the rest is history.

Doctor Proctor was the bull that cowboys wanted to conquer! The average rider lasted about 4 seconds with only two hanging on for seven seconds.

He earned reserve champion bull of the year in 2006. He was ridden only seven times in 40 BFTS outs, for a career buckoff percentage of 84.75 and an average score of 44. 476. He was retired in 2008.

He went on to live a wonderful life that included living with his cloned offspring. Sadly, Doctor Proctor passed away recently — just 10 days before his 16th birthday.

But thanks to YouTube, we still have our memories.
