Police kill bull after escape from Kansas veterinarian

HAYS, Kan. (AP) – A bull that escaped from a central Kansas veterinarian who owned it spent about 10 minutes on the loose before being shot and killed by a police officer after attempts to corral and sedate it failed.

Police in Hays say no injuries resulted after the animal’s escape shortly after 8:30 a.m. Saturday, though two vehicles were damaged by the bull.

Police say officers and volunteers tried to keep the animal outside Hays’ city limits, and as the animal moved toward a more-populated area and approached the business district the decision was made to shoot the animal.

The veterinarian removed the bull from the scene.
