DECATUR, Ala. (AP) – Decatur police say a bull has escaped from a cattle pen and is on the run.
Lt. John Crouch said in a statement Thursday that the escaped bull charged at the first officer who arrived on the scene and damaged his patrol car.
Crouch says Valley Stockyard employees told authorities that the bull is extremely dangerous. Police are warning people to stay indoors and not to approach the animal under any circumstances.
Crouch says police, animal control officials and Valley Stockyard employees are searching for the bull.
