A loose bovine believed to be a steer, was recently killed in Baltimore. The animal was first witnessed at about 10:15 in the morning trotting through a busy intersection. The large black steer ran down a median and into the street.
Although cars were out and about at the time, the steer somehow avoided being stuck by a vehicle. Tons of calls were made to law enforcement from concerned residents.
Police were immediately dispatched to the area. Officers chased after the animal hoping to contain it, but unfortunately they were forced to shoot. According to Baltimore police spokeswoman Sergeant Sarah Connolly, the steer had ran towards another intersection and cops feared for the safety of everyone around, leading to their decision to kill the animal.
Onlookers reportedly gathered around the dead steer. Officers suspect the steer fled from a slaughterhouse in West Baltimore, and the facility’s owner remarked “I’m glad nobody was hurt. Police did what they had to do.” An investigation will presumably be launched to determine how exactly the steer managed to escape.
