Charo says she had to give up her pet bull after Beverly Hills neighbors complained
Charo says she has a beef with her neighbors. The Spanish-American guitarist and entertainer says she had to give up her pet bull after a neighbor in Beverly Hills, Calif., complained about the smell of its feces.
Charo says she adopted the bull calf after they filmed an anti-bullfighting video together for the animal rights group PETA in 2009. Now that the bull has grown, she says, "Beverly Hills people complain" about the aroma.
A Beverly Hills spokeswoman confirms that officials advised a resident that livestock isn't allowed in the city.
Charo says the bull is named Manolo. She says it lives at a Malibu horse farm but is still allowed to visit her.
The entertainer appears in the SiTV series "Latino 101." She just released the single "Sexy Sexy."
