Morning Start: Bulls are colour-blind

Your morning start for Monday, July 11

Good morning Okanagan! Hope you had a great weekend! Now let’s get your day and week started!

Fun Fact: Bulls are partially colour-blind. One colour they can’t see is red.

To them, a matador’s flag looks a yellow-grey colour. The waving of the flag is what gets them angry.
