Curious bull checks out supermarket

A curious bull entered a supermarket in Ireland, had a good look around, and then left, the market owner said.

John Cummins, who owns the Supervalu in Ballinrobe, County Mayo, on the west coast of Ireland, said the bull passed up a Tesco to enter his store, The Daily Telegraph reported Saturday. Cummins said the animal went down an aisle and back again and then left through the same door it had used to get into the store.

Some of the staff ran after him when he went into the store, but they got out of the way again when he turned around to come out -- and I wouldn't blame them, he said. People were joking afterwards that our beef was fresh and fully traceable.

The owner of the bull eventually recaptured it.
