The Kingsville Bull is safe.
It seems the complaint that had been filed with the county has been rescinded.
Gene Schwandtner, a 49-year-old Kingsville resident, installed the landmark on his property located just south of Open Bible Way.
The bull can be seen along Belair Road just below the Batimore-Harford County line.
On Saturday, June 10, Schwandtner posted to Facebook saying that he received a notice from the county giving him until June 25 to remove the Kingsville Bull. The notice stated that the bull was a non-permitted sign.
The bull, which is made of aluminum, was constructed by a company in Texas. Schwandtner and his son then poured a concrete base for it which reads “Kingsville.” It was erected about two years ago, according to The Baltimore Sun.
The community has rallied to the bull’s defense, with Councilman David Marks calling on the local community to help “save the Kingsville Bull.”
UPDATE: We have received notice that the complaint has been rescinded. Thank you for all of your support for the Kingsville Bull. We would also like to thank David Marks, our County Councilman, and his office for their help!
And so, the new Kingsville landmark is safe, and that’s no bull.
