Bulls caught near Baltimore apartment complex

BALTIMORE (AP) — Police say two bulls escaped from a west Baltimore slaughterhouse, but didn't get far before being corralled and taken into "custody."

Police spokeswoman Detective Chakia Fennoy says the bulls got loose early Friday and made it only a block away, then hung out and ate grass.

Fennoy says police officers used cruisers to block the bulls in at an apartment complex parking lot. Police tweeted that the bulls were contained to the lot, then later tweeted they were "in custody" with a video showing a truck hauling a trailer away.

No property damage was reported.

When a bull escaped a slaughterhouse in the same area in 2014, it made it two miles away before police cordoned off several roads and fatally shot the animal.
