No bull at local credit union as Ferdinand goes home

Surprise visitor puts deposits on hold while owner is called

Members and employees at UNCLE Credit Union's main branch in Livermore received quite a surprise recently when a bull from a neighboring field came for a visit.

Ferdinand, a friendly bull, escaped the field he calls home and happily grazed on the lawn surrounding UNCLE's branch.

Laura Olson, the credit union's marketing and business development manager, said staff and a helpful depositor were able to occupy Ferdinand with grain and lots of grass until his owners arrived to safely return him home.

"All's well that ends well," Olson said. "Ferdinand is safely home, UNCLE employees have made a new friend, and we're left pondering the thought: maybe the grass really is greener at UNCLE."

UNCLE Credit Union has branches in Pleasanton, Livermore, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Tracy and Manteca.

Perhaps they should parlay this into some new ads.
