Little Yellow Jacket, a three-time World Champion Bull died Monday at the age of 15.
A legend on the Professional Bull Riders circuit, the animal was co-owned by Bernie Taupin.
"Little Yellow Jacket was a tremendous athlete, and the mere mention of his name brings great memories to fans of our sport," said PBR CEO Jim Haworth. "He will certainly be remembered as one of the all-time greats."
The bull's last foal crop will be born in 2012 and he''ll be honoured with the Brand of Honour at a Heroes & Legends Ceremony in Las Vegas on the 25th October.
