Let go, you son of a...!

You dumb kid!

Bullwhip is the secondary antagonist of Disney's 1985 live action film The Journey of Natty Gann.

He was portrayed by the animal trainer Clint Rowe.


After a close encounter with a group of railroad cops known by Harry as the "Bulls", Natty finds herself alone in an unfamiliar town and wanders into a dogfighting ring, where she watches the violence in horror. The two dogfighters begin to pull their dogs away, but the dogs begin to fight. Wolf kills his opponent and Bullwhip is determined to avenge his dog. He continues to whip Wolf until he grabs the whip and pull it out of his hands.

After Wolf attacks the evil dogfighter, Natty helps him to escape and is punched by Bullwhip. She returns to sleep in a train car at the depot, and finds Wolf hiding there. Natty quickly moves to an empty car, but leaves a scrap of food behind and they eventually become friends.

It is unknown what happened to Bullwhip afterwards, but he was most likely arrested for animal cruelty and child abuse.


  • As his name suggests, he uses his bullwhip to abuse Wolf.
  • Bullwhip's actor, Clint Rowe is actually the owner and trainer of Jed, the late wolfdog that played Wolf.
  • Although he is the secondary antagonist, he has very little screen time.
  • Bullwhip shares similarities from Beauty Smith from Disney's White Fang. Both are brutal dogfighters who make a wolfdog protagonist (Wolf and White Fang) fight other dogs and are both played by Jed.
