A black Angus steer on the loose from a local farm was fatally shot Wednesday after it was deemed dangerous to the public, police said. The steer broke free from Denbesten’s farm on North Street at around 2:45 p.m. Wednesday, and owner Terry Denbesten informed police that the animal had become violent and charged at employees, police said. Police found the steer, weighing about 1,300 pounds and standing about 5 feet tall, running through traffic, where officers corralled and shot it, police said. No injuries were reported.
