81-year old takes on bull in viral video

E waru tekau mā tahi tau te pakeke o Mahaki Konia kua rongonui i te ipurangi mō te tukituki i te pūru i te whakatumatuma rā i te waka o tāna tama. Kua kitea te kiriata nei he rima rau mano nga wā a I kōrero a Te Kāea ki tāna tama, ki a Whetu Konia, nāna te whāataata i kapo ai hei kitenga mā te ao.

Koinei te wā i kuku ai hā ai te iwi pae papori. E tuki rae ki te rae ai a Mahaki Konia, waru tekau ma tahi te pakeke ki a te puuru Rex o Tikitiki.

“The bull was over by my ute for insurance purposes I started filming it and next minute my dad went out the gate and thats where it all started,” hei tā Whetu.

Na Whetu, te tamaiti a Mahaki, enei pikitia i kapo.

“A little surprised he went out there and didn’t know what he was going to do. Then he picked up the water bottle, I didn't know what was going through my mind a little bit of fear, I didn't know what we could do so I thought I'd just keep videoing it.”

Na te toa o Mahaki, i rongonui a ia i te ipurangi i te po.

“I haven’t read a lot of the comments saying a lot of people saying their Koro would do the same, some commenting on my colourful language.”

I whāki atu a Whetu ki tona Papa e noho ana ki Te Tairāwhiti mo tona rongonuitanga hou.

“I rung him yesterday and he was more interested in the storm hitting the Cape at that time. I did mention that someone might call him for a chat, but he's a humble man he’s more interested in the weather.”

Na wai, na wai ka puta pūru Taitama mai, pūru tukituki mai hoki a Mahaki.
