A Texas Petco welcomed a very large guest this week when an African Watusi stopped by for a visit.

Otherwise known as 'Oliver,' the massive steer is fully trained and can be led on a leash. He's even available for events and has his own Facebook page followed by over 30,000 people.

Oliver is making national news after Shelly Lumpkin and trainer Vincent Browning took video of Oliver being led into a local Petco on a leash.

In a post on Oliver's Facebook page, Browning says "We decided to take a chance and call Petco's bluff on the 'All Leashed Pets are Welcome' policy. Not only did the employees welcome the gentle giant, they spent some time taking pictures and petting him.

Petco followed up with their own posting on the event, stating "We mean it when we say ALL leashed pet are welcome in our stores."
