"Bullock in Darlington escapes cattle market"

From The Daily Mail:

Residents in a quiet cul-de-sac in Darlington, County Durham, were left stunned when the animal ran amok after escaping from a nearby cattle market. Police received reports of the rampaging young bull chasing people around the town centre at noon.

When the beast headed towards Tennyson Gardens, police warned residents to stay indoors as staff from a local farmers' auction mart worked to recapture it. By the time they caught up with the bullock half an hour later, it had been cornered in the close - using two cows as bait. Farmers and police then managed to usher the runaway into a vehicle.

No one was hurt during the incident.

It's not quite Pamplona yet, is it?

Using two cows as bait. LOL. Threesome, eh?

JH, no, these are solid Northern cows who'll have none of that tomfoolery. The other cow was the chaperone.
