Police corral escaped bull with Tasers
Utah authorities said police used Tasers to keep a runaway bull under control until its owner could load it into a trailer.
South Jordan, Utah., police Lt. Dan Starks said neighbors attempted to help the owner recapture the bull when it escaped Wednesday and one of the volunteers, an 80-year-old man, was knocked to the ground by the animal, The Salt Lake Tribune reported Thursday.
The 80-year-old man suffered cuts and a small amount of bleeding. He was taken to the Jordan Valley Medical Center as a precaution, Starks said.
