A bull that escaped a Queens slaughterhouse led New York police on a wild chase through the streets Tuesday.
Unfortunately, the animal died just hours after it was captured. The cause of death was not immediately clear and police declined to comment, according to NBC New York.
The bull endured “at least a dozen tranquilizer darts in its side” over the course of the lengthy chase.
Live footage from Chopper 4 captivated viewers for hours online before authorities were finally able to apprehend the bull. It was a sad ending, but you have to admire the animal’s ability to avoid capture.
