Sometimes, thick and massive horns can cause health complications. The Guinness Book of World Records lists a bull named Gopal as the owner of the longest set of horns ever recorded, but those horns were surgically removed due to the distress the weight was causing him.
Similarly, Lurch died from cancer that took root at the base of one of his horns.
