‘Dan­ger­ous’ bull de­stroyed af­ter abat­toir es­cape

Western Mail - - NEWS -

A “dan­ger­ous” bull which es­caped from an abat­toir in Car­marthen­shire has been de­stroyed.

Po­lice re­ceived a re­port that the bull had made a last-ditch bid for free­dom from Cig Calon Cymru in Cross Hands at 10.30am yes­ter­day morn­ing.

Of­fi­cers closed Black Lion Road and warned nearby res­i­dents to stay in­doors as the bull was con­sid­ered dan­ger­ous.

For the safety of the pub­lic, the de­ci­sion was taken to “hu­manely de­stroy” the an­i­mal af­ter it had trav­elled from the abat­toir to Black Lion Road, which is par­al­lel to Heol Parc Mawr and Heol Stan­l­lyd, home to a num­ber of busi­nesses.

The po­lice said the an­i­mal had be­come “ex­tremely ag­i­tated” and was a dan­ger to the pub­lic.

A spokes­woman for Dyfed-Powys Po­lice con­firmed: “A bull that had es­caped from Cig Calon Cymru in Cross Hands has been hu­manely de­stroyed.

“A num­ber of op­tions to safely contain and deal with the bull were con­sid­ered but none were found to be fea­si­ble.”
