A bull that escaped from a Queens, New York slaughterhouse and led police on a wild chase through neighborhood streets has died, according to police.
The bull made its way down Archer Ave. and Sutphin Blvd. after escaping from Slaughter 8 on Beaver Rd. around 10:30 A.M., police sources said. The animal was also seen on Liberty Ave. and 150th St., officials and witnesses said.
After remaining on the loose for nearly two hours, the bull was cornered by the NYPD’s Emergency Services Unit in a backyard on 158th St.
Via NBC New York:
The bull, which was seen with at least a dozen tranquilizer darts in its side over the course of the miles-long chase, died at some point before 2:30 P.M., nearly three hours after it escaped a Beaver Road slaughterhouse and went on a free-for-all through Queens, ducking cops in Jamaica and South Ozone Park.
The bull’s cause of death wasn’t made immediately clear. City officials had no further comment.
