Since the height of the Occupy Wall Street movement in Zuccotti Park, the Financial District's 7,000-pound charging mascot has remained captive, but Community Board 1 has had enough. The people have spoken, and they want their massive bronze bull to be freed from the constraints of the NYPD's flimsy metal barricades. Yet the fence remains despite the FiDi Committee of CB1's unanimous resolution for its removal. Tourists so desperately want to be near to the bull that they line up in the streets, putting themselves in harm's way, waiting to be allowed to visit the mighty animal one at a time. Why, then, do the barriers remain? "Well, that's something only Ray Kelly can answer."
