Holy cow! Is this Australia's largest steer?

WA steer stands at almost 2 metres and weighs 1.4 tonnes

Owner Geoff Pearson told Perth Now that Knickers' size could even save its life, because Knickers is too big for the local abattoir.

Much of that is down to Knickers' pure animal magnetism - other cattle tend to follow him around the paddocks in their hundreds.

Knickers the steer stands tall over the herd.

Here's a look at some of the best headlines, memes, reactions and puns all dedicated to the staggering steer. But he's very placid, not aggressive, just inquisitive'.

Big Knickers: According to BBC, Knickers was first bought when he was about 1 year old.

Vets said steers grew to be far bigger than bulls because they were castrated young and don't go through the hormonal changes that stop bulls growing. Despite other members of Knickers's herd being sent to the slaughterhouse, Pearson said he made a decision to let Knickers stay on the feedlot as "he's not hurting anyone".

UAE Considering Clemency for Jailed UK Academic
Matthew Hedges was believed to be back in solitary confinement last night - despite hopes that he might be released this week. Ms Tejada said: I am very hopeful that the UAE rulers will take into consideration Matt's family and my plea for his freedom.

She said: "Damn that is one huge cow".

'He's just getting on with his job, which is basically just eating and sleeping, ' he said.

Knickers might have a case to be eventually declared Australia's biggest steer, but he's a relative small fry compared to Bellino, a Chianina ox in Italy that stands 6 feet, 7 inches, according to Guinness World Records.

Knickers' size actually helped him avoid a grizzlier fate too - he's actually too big to be killed and sold as meat.

Mr Pearson - who owns about 20,000 cattle - reckons Knickers has a few years left.
