A runaway bull, that was spotted running down Main Street in Kutztown (Pennsylvania), prompted the Kutztown University Police Department to issue an aggressive cow alert after the animal made its way onto campus, Sunday night. The bovine appeared scared because it was unfamiliar with its surroundings, police said in the alert that went out via its emergency notification system, about 7:15p. It advised recipients to avoid the North Campus and to not approach the bull, if encountered.

About 30 minutes later, campus police sent an update saying the animal’s owner, from the Fleetwood area, was on his way to retrieve the runaway. A third update, sent about 8:45p, indicated the threat to the campus community had ended but, the bull was, reportedly, still on the loose, last seen in Fleetwood. A video taken by Aaron Merkel and, shared to YouTube, showed the bovine as it trotted down Main Street in Kutztown, trailed by a police car. It could not be verified Monday morning with Fleetwood Police whether there were any livestock sightings in the borough and whether the bull was back in its owner’s possession.

A Berks County 911 Supervisor said there were no calls Monday morning for wandering livestock.

The bovine’s owner was contacted but, the cow left the scene before it could be captured. University spokesman Matt Santos said the cow made a second visit to campus on Tuesday night. He said police caught up with the animal near Lytle Hall but, it fled into the nearby woods before it could be wrangled.

          It’s odd, here. Bears are in the Eastern parts and, naturally, in our mountains. Rarely we hear of them at the coast, nor west of Greensboro. Must be food supplies & woodland parks…

    Hardly aggressive. City folks don’t know aggressive. And, friend on the youtube, that is a steer.

      Nope…esp. with my spiritual “mom”, above, that lives on a farm. Linda knows her stuff on a Colorado farm.

      Read up on our local dairy farmer that was attacked (above).
