Olly Ox did not improve, and not having a game park handy we decided that such a wild animal was simply too dangerous. At over four he could not legally be eaten, due, ironically, to the scandalous "mad cow" rules. Half a ton of beautiful (though admittedly neurotic) beef had to be wastefully incinerated. Thankfully the rules are to end next year, long after all danger of BSE has passed (and of course too late for Olly).
