Aggressive bull reported loose in Penrose shot, killed

PENROSE, Colo. — An aggressive bull reported on the loose in Penrose was put down Wednesday morning, according to the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities say the bull was spotted running through private pastures with other animals, and was put down “due to the extreme public safety hazard.”

“The bull had been shot by a private land owner the night before and was suffering a gunshot wound to the chest,” the Sheriff’s Office said in an updated Facebook statement. “Unfortunately, this was the most safe and humane outcome.”

The bull was first reported on the loose around 10 a.m. Tuesday.
