A 900-pound bull escaped on his way to slaughter and led his owners and authorities on a two-mile chase through two eastern Pennsylvania townships for an hour.
Wayne Myers of Bald Top was headed to the butcher with the raging 2-year-old bull when he stopped at a red light near a middle school Wednesday. He says that's when then the bull made a break for it.
The bull fled ran at least two miles before being shot to death by its owners.
No one else was hurt.
