A bull escaped from a slaughterhouse in Bridgewater Tuesday morning and was later euthanized, police said.
The 2,000-pound bull broke through two gates at the Den Besten Farm at 8 North St. at about 11:45 a.m., Bridgewater police said in a press release.
“Employees reported that the bull would charge at anyone that approached it,” police said.
An officer and an employee followed the bull’s footprints in the snow for about a mile before locating it, police said.
The bull did not enter residential or business areas, police said.
