... and we don't mean the liberal professors or Ferdinand!
Police in Bridgewater were forced to put down a Black Angus steer who escaped his pen and was advancing on Bridgewater-Raynham High School. They began to get calls at around 3 PM yesterday.
The 1300 pound bull straight busted out of his confines at Denbesten's Farm. The farm's owner called 911 to inform police that the steer was dangerous.
I tend to be more of an end-use consumer of beef, and have little experience dealing with them on the hoof... but I gather that bulls don't really like people that much, and are a threat to charge anything they see. Bullfighting is based on this character flaw.
The beast made his way to the center of town, smashed into a local business (I believe it was an insurance firm, ironically) and scattered several employees. He also paid a how-do-you-do to a condominium complex. He then made his way down Main Street, just generally being badass. Again, he's 1300 pounds, and stands 5 feet at the shoulder.
To my knowledge, no one jumped out with a cape and started playing Matador... a rather disappointing development, what with all the Spanish I hear spoken as I travel the state. The police did try to corral it with their cruisers, but Angus was having none of that.
Sadly, they had to put him down. It was 3 PM, and he was heading for the high school. A bull is a terrible thing to let loose on a bunch of high school kids, even if they are brats and deserving of retribution.
No one (aside from Angus or "Ferdinand") was injured, although I bet those cats at the business Angus rushed lost a few of their 9 lives.
