A bull, who managed to escape from a slaughterhouse in Queens, New York, led police on a wild chase which lasted for several hours on Tuesday. For hours, the terrified animal desperately eluded capture, but he was shot repeatedly with tranquilizers while trying to maintain his freedom. According to NBC New York News, not long after officials finally captured him, he died.
The wild chase began after the bull escaped from a slaughterhouse on Beaver Road – for miles, the rogue bull ran through city streets and finally, wound up in someone’s yard. According to ABC 7 News, after finally being cornered and captured, the bull was taken to an animal care center in Brooklyn – he was dead upon arrival.
According to ABC 7 News, the bull was repeatedly struck with darts containing Ketaset (a tranquilizer) as well as a syringe of Xylazine. The exact cause of the bull’s death has not yet been determined.
