Au­thor­i­ties have taken the bull by the horns.

The stray 10-mon­thold black An­gus that ran down the mid­dle of Broadway (U.S. Route 9W) in Port Ewen on Mon­day has been re­turned to its owner and “every­body is safe and sound,” a state trooper said Tues­day.

The trooper, at the state po­lice bar­racks in High­land, said the owner has “got­ten his an­i­mal back,” but she de­clined to iden­tify the per­son.

Eso­pus Town Clerk Holly Net­ter said the bull had “been re­turned to its right­ful owner.”

The bull eluded cap­ture Mon­day un­til it set­tled down next to a wooden cutout of a cow on a prop­erty across from the Port Ewen An­i­mal Hos­pi­tal on Broadway in the Eso­pus ham­let.

The an­i­mal even­tu­ally was tran­quil­ized by em­ploy­ees of the Gar­diner An­i­mal Hos­pi­tal and state po­lice and taken to a farm to await its fate.
