Bull that ran down road is back with its owner
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.
