Bull's Penis[edit]

Bully sticks are made from bull's penis. I don't know why its says large tendon. I am not vandalizing! This should be addressed. Here's a link:

Recent changes to this article[edit]

I usually try to avoid getting into edit wars, so I will just leave my concerns here. First, I think this is a good start for an article about a weird but real dog treat. However, according to Wikipedia:Neutral point of view, there shouldn't be any bias in an article one way or another. Phrases like They are prized by dogs and will no doubt be chewed upon by dogs for years to come make this sound like an ad. Also, the image may get deleted since it was taken from another website (see Wikipedia:Image use policy). If you have any bully sticks at home, take a picture and upload it, and then we can use it for sure. Thanks. --Joelmills 22:24, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

I noticed that there are absolutly NO references cited in this article. How can we claim fact with no evidence? 18:04, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

I still have a problem with this article. I states that they are usually 24" in length, but most pet stores sell 30" bully sticks. Also, the last line is really tipping towards opinion. The article obviously needs some help, so I am tagging it for expansion. D0ggieM0mma 17:34, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

This entry appears to be plagarized.

No, I think that's coincidental, looking back at the history of the article. --Joelmills 23:12, 28 July 2007 (UTC)

Joel, stop taking my link off of the picture I placed on the site. The picture is provided courtesy of that site. I don't understand why you are trying to be so involved in the editing of a pet treat page...AvrumElmakis1

There is a difference between what it says now:

Picture courtesy of

and what I removed:

Other images of bully sticks or dogs chewing on bully sticks can be found on my website

The first gives the source of the image, which is fine. The second is just advertising the existence of a website whose only purpose is to sell the viewer dog treats. The difference is subtle, but it is there. I will leave the current version as it is, although I still think it may be in violation of WP:EL. As to why I even watch this page, I can't remember how I first ran across it. However, I hate to see pages on wikipedia that solely exist to advertise products. Instead of putting it up for deletion, I tried to change it so it can remain. I will continue to remove advertising as it crops up. So even though you don't understand why I'm involved in editing this page, I think it's fairly obvious why you continue to edit it. --Joelmills 15:50, 31 July 2007 (UTC)
I apologize for that last sentence of my above remark. That was unnecessary. --Joelmills 19:09, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Delete it, or write it.=[edit]

Two f----ng lines of text to TWO GIANT IMAGES. Either merge it, delete it, or add something here. (talk) 12:34, 6 May 2008 (UTC)

As I understand it from several pet store owners both in the US and here in the Netherlands, Bully Sticks are not the same thing as Bull Pizzle Chews. Bully Sticks are not the bull's penis, but rather are either beef muscle or beef tendon. They look almost exactly alike, so I can imagine why people get confused. I apologize for my ignorance in how to update the wikipedia entry or even the protocol for this page. Just wanted to clear up the confusion on the definition. I am not affiliated with anyplace that sells Bully Sticks, but my dog loves them and can chew/eat the Bully Sticks but gets sick from the Bull Pizzle Chews.
