When farm life meets the city. I bet this was not on the commuters’ bingo card for the day.
It’s not every day that you see livestock loose in a city setting, and it is even more rare that you see livestock running around a train track. Today was a crossing of stars as a loose bull in Newark, New Jersey, was spotted on the New Jersey Transit train tracks.
Passengers of a train pulling into the station of the animal trotting alongside the train tracks, leading to a shutdown of the station.
As the primary goal was to capture the bull safely and return him to a safe environment, police responded to the call and were able to contain the bull in a temporary fencing enclosure.
Once they were able to contain the animal, he was given a mild tranquilizer so he could be removed from the train tracks and will be taken to a local animal sanctuary.
