Clearing up some of your questions about the interview with deputies Brian Wood and Cody Roland
the interview with Deputies Brian Wood and Cody Roland.
The number one question that was asked, "you allowed the deputies to give their side of the story, but what about the Yantis Family?" We did reach out to the Yantis family immediately following the shooting, and within the last few days. They've decided to remain silent for now. Back in December, we sat down with Donna Yantis for an exclusive interview. Jenny Anderson Garrett said, "I'm not sure whey they even called Jack. It seems to me they had more than enough ammo to take out a bull. One well placed shot is all it takes." Deputy Brian Wood explained, "the bull laid down near the front of a truck and then needed to be put down. We were about to do that when the rancher showed up. That's normally his job, his responsibility so we decided to sit back and let him do that. That's when things changed rapidly." Deputy Cody Roland said, "there is some confusion as to why Brian did not shoot him in the head and kill him immediately. When an animal like that is moving at night Brian is responsible for every round that is fired. If he would have attempted to shoot that bull in the head and missed and would have hit a vehicle, EMT personnel, that is not the chance you take."
