ST PETERSBURG -

There's a whole lot of bull on the University of South Florida's St. Petersburg Campus -- 850 pounds of it.

The school's St. Pete branch received a bronze bull statue yesterday.  Workers carefully unloaded the statue, placing it on the Harborwalk in front of the University Student Center.  A fork-lift lowered it into place, then, the bull's protective wrapping was removed.

USF system president Judy Genshaft was on-hand for the unveiling, and even snapped a few photos of the new bull, along with students who turned out for the event.

The school posted photos of the statue on its Facebook fan page.
