A runaway bull wandered onto campus around 11 a.m. Wednesday before being captured by local police, animal control and cowboys.
The black bull appeared to weigh “several thousand pounds” and posed a potential threat to the public, said Jayme Blaschke, director of University News Service. No injuries to the bull or bystanders were reported.
“The bull seems to be in good spirits,” Blaschke said. “The bull did not seem to be particularly aggressive.”
University Police immediately responded after learning of the bull’s presence by securing parts of western campus and issuing an emergency alert via email to students, faculty and staff, Blaschke said.
The bull had left campus by 11:17 a.m., according to an emergency email alert.
