Runaway bull dies after escape from New York City slaughterhouse

The runaway bull, who escaped from a slaughterhouse, was spotted by the corner of Archer and Sutphin avenues at about 10:20 a.m.

Cows escaped slaughterhouses at least twice a year ago, in January and April.

As police were clearing the block, the bull sprang between police cars and escaped again, leading slaughterhouse employees on a chase.

It was in the New York City borough of Queens.

According to CBS, local resident Felicia Evans said: "It was the running of the bulls today from what I understand".

Minneapolis is country's 15th most traffic riddled city, study says
The study found that drivers are losing out on fuel costs and their time, and the congestion is also affecting their productivity. NY ranked third, with drivers there averaging 89 hours stuck in traffic a year ago and San Francisco ranked fourth.

Footage on WABC-TV showed the black bull trotting through a residential neighbourhood.

Officers trailed after the bull for about two hours, trying to trap it between police vehicles and avoid being injured. Someone even started a Jamaica Bull account on Twitter, named after the Jamaica, Queens, neighborhood where the escape took place. Comedian Jon Stewart and his wife, Tracey, took Frank to an animal sanctuary in Watkins Glen.

A crew from an animal sanctuary is on the way to get the animal.

The Daily News reported the cow died after it was tranquilized by police.
