Crafty bull eludes Kamloops police again

A hoof print was left by a loose bull in the Dallas neighbourhood earlier this week.

KAMLOOPS - Police finally found the trail of a missing 1,400 pound bull, on the loose since Aug. 28, but he managed to escape capture and disappeared somewhere near Knutsford.

Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Edward Preto says in a release someone in Petersen Creek got on the horn to police early yesterday morning, Sept. 1, but they waited an hour to make the report. It was gone when police arrived. 

Police got another chance around 9 p.m. after several sightings on Summit Dr, then at Albert McGowan Park. 

"RCMP and a Conservation Officer were hot on the trail of the Bull, but he managed to cross Hwy 5A and was last seen heading South to Knutsford," Preto says. "The public is reminded to keep a healthy distance from the bull and to not approach it.  This bull is very unpredictable and considered dangerous."

The bull is missing from the B.C. Livestock Yard on Dallas Drive. It has tan skin, large horns, and no brands or markings. Evidence of it was seen in the Dallas area earlier this week.

If you see the animal, call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 immediately.
