Bull escapes from owner, runs loose in north valley

LAS VEGAS - A bull escaped from its owner on Sunday morning and made a ruckus in one valley neighborhood.

"It woke me up because there was so much commotion. Why is everybody, what is going on?" said Darius Brown.

Brown says the bull was running loose right outside his apartment which came as quite a surprise. 

"It's a bull in the middle of the street. I was like 'what?' They come in the room. I wake up. The bull was running up the street. I said 'wow,'" Brown explained.  

The bull got loose in the area of Cheyenne Avenue and Michael Way. Brown caught the action on video from his balcony. 

Others in the neighborhood say the animal was wandering in the road. 

"He walked the complex all the way around like a human being, and he wasn't doing anything wild. He looked at a person and walked around that person, so he was very smart. He was no joke," said Billy Ray, witness. 

Officers were able to wrangle the animal into an enclosed area, said Lt. Steve Summers, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

8 News NOW received video from another witness which shows the bull tied to a stop sign signal post before being moved into a trailer with the help of a man on a horse and animal control. 

"The bull was cool. He was just a baby. At least he didn't hurt nobody. Thank God, man" Ray said. 

Neighbors say they are glad no one got hurt and are happy the animal is safe.
