300-pound baby bull on the loose in Rehoboth
REHOBOTH, Mass. (WHDH) -- Animal Control officers in Rehoboth are on the lookout for a runaway bull.
The 4-month-old bull escaped from a farm and has been on the loose since Monday. Police say the 300-pound animal poses no threat to the public.
“He’s out there somewhere and he decided to run and not stop running. Run Forrest, run,” said Joe Medeiros, bull owner.
The bull named Forrest decided to make a break for it Monday leaving his near-identical brother all alone.
“I had a rope on both of them. Well, the one that got away and started pulling back pulling back slipped off his head. And when it slipped off its head, I’m like, ‘uh oh,’ and sure enough he tested the fence ‘cause I have an electrical fence, and once he tested the fence he went right through,” said Medeiros.
Forrest was last heard making a lot of noise on French Street in Rehoboth early Wednesday morning.
Animal Control says Forrest most likely wants to find a new herd to join because he doesn’t know the area.
They hope the bull will return to the farm on its own.
