Video: Police cruisers chase escaped bull

Wranglers with lassos were called in as backup

By PoliceOne Staff

AUBURN, Wash. — Wranglers and officers — caught on dash cam — worked together to chase and catch a bull running through downtown.

Just before midnight Saturday, Auburn police received 911 calls about the loose animal and were immediately concerned for citizens’ safety, according to Q13 FOX.

Several police cruisers chased the charging animal before it was captured with the help of lasso-carrying wranglers.

“We’ve had wildlife in the city before, but I don't remember a bull being downtown,” Auburn Police Cmdr. Mike Hirman said.

No injuries have been reported.
