PARAGOULD, Ark. (AP) — Police in Paragould have killed a small bull that was found wandering near the Paragould Country Club.
Jonesboro television station KAIT reports that police received multiple calls Sunday from residents who spotted the bull. Police say officers tried to capture the animal and move it into an open field, but the bull continued to walk down U.S. Highway 49.
Authorities say that the animal was cornered in a parking lot near the intersection of U.S. 49 and U.S. 412.
Authorities say they had no choice but to kill the bull because of safety concerns.
