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.
