Oregon Rodeo Bull Won’t Be Put Down Following Rampage … Officials Say

The bull that went on a wild rampage at an Oregon rodeo on Saturday night will NOT be euthanized … TMZ Sports has learned it’s been sent back to its home ranch instead.

Brian Witt — VP of Sisters Rodeo — tells us the plan is for the animal, nicknamed “Party Bus,” to receive further training at the farm to prevent a similar incident in the future. Witt says the bull will take the rest of the year off from bucking … and if it receives proper clearance, it could potentially return to shows at a later date.

The news will surprise many … considering Party Bus left multiple people injured when it leaped over fencing and wreaked havoc at the sold-out 84th Sisters Rodeo in Deschutes County.

The bull ran free for several minutes in the patron-lined areas — injuring at least four, including one who was tossed in the air by Party Bus’ horns.

Witt, though, tells us he believes it was an honest mistake from the bull … as he thinks Party Bus was just looking to return to the pen where the animals were held, but it got spooked and became erratic.

Witt said the 3-year-old received proper clearance to participate in the rodeo from the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association — which sanctions events in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Even though the worst-case scenario happened … Witt said they plan for incidents like this — and while they will perform a protocol review, the workers acted promptly to control the situation.

Witt added the weekend finale on Sunday went off without a hitch … and that all other bulls stayed within the confines of the arena.
