I hope someone had a BBQ and they did not just throw it in a dumpster. PLEASANT GROVE, Utah (AP) — A runaway bull smashed three police cars and an animal control officer’s truck before it was shot as it approached a Utah interstate.

Pleasant Grove police Capt. Michael Smith says the bull got loose Wednesday afternoon, crashed through fences, bullied through traffic and prompted several 911 calls.

Police tried to corral it but came out on the losing end. The animal crushed the hood of one police car, damaged two others and ripped the grill off an animal control truck.

Smith says the Utah Highway Patrol reported two accidents occurred as drivers slowed down to look at the bull. Officers decided to fatally shoot the bull before it reached Interstate 15 or caused more property damage.
