Young bull captured after roaming county for hours

An 8-month old bull escaped a farm off Fox Mountain Road Wednesday morning and was on the loose for a few hours. A trucker almost hit the bull on U.S. 74 and the bull was tranquilized by the Polk County Animal Control office and returned to its owner around 12:30 p.m. Polk County Animal Control Officer Michael Herman used a new tranquilizer gun and officers and the owner got the bull into a trailer on the side of U.S. 74 eastbound just prior to the Hwy. 9 exit. The bull was not harmed in the incident. (photos by Leah Justice)
