Where's the beef? Escaped bull on the loose in Kamloops area


KAMLOOPS - An escaped bull is eluding capture in the Kamloops area so the RCMP are looking for the public's help to spot it.

The 1,400 lbs. bull got away from the B.C. Livestoke Yard on TransCanada Highway East last week and was last seen this weekend between Tanager Drive and the Pineridge Golf Course, according to an RCMP media release.

Although RCMP point out the bull could have travelled a good distance in any direction since then.

Police warn the public not to approach the bull because he is unpredictable and could be dangerous.

If you see a tan bull with large horns and no markings or brands call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or the B.C. Livestock Yard immediately.
