Va. police shoot, kill rampaging bull

Police shot and killed a bull after the animal escaped from a livestock business and rampaged through Harrisonburg, charging at bystanders and vehicles.

The Black Angus was on the loose for about an hour Thursday, making its way through an apartment complex, a city park and a residential neighborhood.

Harrisonburg police Sgt. R. Pollard says the bull was foaming at the mouth and appeared to be “in a deranged state.”

Pollard says the bull's owners told police to kill the animal after it couldn't be controlled. Police shot and killed the bull after cornering it in a backyard.

YES. This is amazing. Does anyone know if there is any video footage of the rampage?

That's sad, but likely a far more humane way to die than he would have under the "humane" slaughter "laws."
