The Connecticut Post reports that the 8-month-old bull escaped from a property in nearby Monroe on Tuesday morning. It wandered through wooded areas and along side streets in Monroe before entering the northern section of Trumbull.
Authorities tried to tranquilize the bull several times but it ran away. Trumbull police asked that pupils at the Tashua School be held until the bull was gone. They were dismissed from school about 20 minutes late.
Trumbull Deputy Police Chief Michael Harry says the bull eventually entered a secluded area, where it was shot and killed. No one was hurt.
