Once it so happened in Shirdi that a bull dedicated to God Shivji roamed about in the village gardens and fields and destroyed the plants, standing crops etc. So people met together and decided to send away the bull to Panjra Pole (an asylum for old beasts) at Yeola and collected some fund for the purpose. They entrusted this work to Bhikoo Marwari of Shirdi in all good faith but the said Bhikoo Marwari proved treacherous.
He did go Yeola as directed, but instead of taking the bull to that asylum, he sold it to a butcher for a sum of Rs. 14/- returned to Shirdi and calmly reported that he had taken the bull to Panjra pole and left it there. Baba knew how the bull was dealth with. So he appeared in one Shri Bayaji's dream and said "you have been enjoying sound sleep of rest. Have not you placed me in a butcher's hand?" Bayaji reported this to the village people, who, growing susppicious of the bonafides of the Marwari, deputed Bayaji to Yeola for investigation. Bayaji went to Yeola Panjra Pole, took complete search of it. Not finding the bull there, he went to the butcher's lane and looked about here and there.
Fortuitously at this very time, the bull had raised up its head above a buscher's compound wall. Shri Bayaji saw this, he atonce recognised it (the bull), so he approached the butcher and requested him to return the bull, but he would not part with it as he has purchased it for Rs. 14/- and then took it (the bull from the butcher to the old beasts asylum and kept it there.
On his return to Shirdi he acquainted the people with what Bhikoo had done and so to set a lesson to such sinful, faithless people as Bhikoo, Baba inspired them to prosecute him. Bhikoo had to undergo in jail for two months for his treacherous act. From this, it is seen that Baba had his Benign protective eyes not only on human beings but also on all creatures.
