A bull that escaped from a slaugterhouse in Queens has died following a wild police chase through the streets, reports said.

The bull was spotted running around Jamaica on Tuesday morning.

ABC7 reported that by 11 a.m., police had cornered the bull in the backyard of a home on Marsden Street near 118th Avenue. They reportedly sedated it with darts, but it wasn't enough to stop the stubborn bovine.

About an hour later, cops managed to properly sedate the bull, and animal care staff arrived at the scene.


Animal Care Centers took the bull to their Brooklyn facility, where it was dead on arrival, according to ABC7. A cause of death was not immediately clear.

Last year, two different cows escaped a local Jamaica slaughterhouse in both January and April, but were saved by activists, includingcomedian Jon Stewart in the latest incident.
