Petco, steer owners Vincent Browning and Shelly Lumpkin, and the star of the show, Oliver the African Watusi.

Lumpkin told FOX 8 that they always enjoy visiting that particular Petco location and intend to bring Oliver back in the future.

Two Texans chose to test Petco's policy on pets in the store.

The Ankole-Watusi breed of cattle is characterized by its strikingly large horns. Oliver may be one of the biggest pets that the store has ever hosted, but they were happy to have him.

The staff members were reportedly "super friendly and courteous".

The Facebook post reads, "We chose to take a chance and call Petco's bluff on the "ALL LEASHED PETS ARE WELCOME" policy".

The post was shared more than 7.5 thousand times on Thursday. They made sure to strap a leash on to Oliver, their African Watusi and see if he would be welcomed. She said his horns are 114 inches from tip to tip when measured along the curve.

And Oliver isn't the only unique critter to pay a visit to Petco.

"People couldn't believe it", Shelly Lumpkin said. "The whole staff there was really nice about it and excited".
