The bull was loose in the area of Coppin State University before it was eventually tranquilized and corralled by crews.

“I was just coming from class,” a student told WJZ. “I came out of class and a police officer asked me had you seen a bull on the loose? I’m thinking it’s a pit bull, but he told me it’s a bull with some horns and it’s over there. It’s huge.”

Another student said he heard about the incident on Facebook.

“I actually saw it on Facebook and I said, ‘That’s my campus.'” the student said. “So I went out and looked and sure enough there it was in the corner. It’s a big guy, he’s pretty big.”

This isn’t the first time a bull has gotten loose in Baltimore: two bulls escaped a west Baltimore slaughterhouse in June.
