This 5c value (Sc #248/SG #360) from North Borneo's 1950-2 KGVI pictorial series depicts a steer at Kota Belud/Kota Kinabalu in the northwest of the country. The cattle industry must still be thriving there as the following newspaper article indicates.

From thestar.com.my, "Thursday, 12 November 2012...Kota Kinabalu: Local authorities in Sabah's 'cowboy' town are not taking the menace of cattle straying lightly. They have literally lifted out cows using cranes as they crack down on the entire problem blamed for numerous accidents and hygiene problems."
