Pair of escaped bulls run loose in Baltimore apartment complex

BALTIMORE, July 22 (UPI) — Residents of a Baltimore apartment complex received a visit from a pair of bulls that escaped from a local slaughterhouse on Friday morning.

According to WBALTV, the bulls escaped from the Old Line Custom Meat Company and found their way into the parking lot of a nearby apartment complex around 7 a.m.

Baltimore police arrived on the scene and used portable gates along with the complex’s “natural barriers” to temporarily trap the bulls, WBFF reported.

“They were able to get some fencing over here to fence them in and we had them contained,” Baltimore Police spokesman T.J. Smith told WTOP. “However, the bulls knocked over the fencing a couple of times, so we had to move people back.”

The bulls were finally captured by about 10:30 a.m., before temperatures reached nearly 100 degrees. No one was hurt in the incident.
