"Bull Captured After Leading Police On Chase In Jamaica, Queens Has Died"

Via Twitter: The bull that was first spotted Tuesday morning on Lakewood Avenue near Sutphin and Archer in Jamaica has died.

It escaped from a slaughterhouse on Jamaica Avenue. A butcher told Bauman they were moving a large group of those cows and he believes this one may have heard a noise got scared and escaped through the fencing.

Even though it was hit with several tranquilizer darts, it managed to continue to make its way through Queens before being captured in a backyard.

After being captured alive, the bull was loaded into a trailer but sadly died en- route during transport to the Center for Animal Care and Control on Linden Blvd in Brooklyn.

The cause of death has not been determined and the bull’s remains will be cremated.

You'd think they'd barbecue him.

Reminds me of Charlotte the groundhog dropped (and perhaps killed) by DeBlasio.

It should have been cremated on a spit.

It was in NY City.
It had balls.
It had to die.

Well of course bulls are running loose in NYC, have you seen what Trump did to the NYSE? Paul Krugman hardest hit.

How would you like to eat a hamburger steak from a bovine that was hit with several tranquilizer darts? Early to bed, wake up a couple of days later...

There's a touching memorial over at EBL's.

This is profoundly sad.

Leading police on a chase?

You know, what exactly did this bovine do to deserve being shot at multiple times by tranquilizers? It seems the major crime was perhaps jaywalking. It wasn't threatening police, but de Blasio's thugs slaughtered it anyway. Bull Lives Matter! #BLM

If Obama had a bull, it would look just like this one.
