Two bulls are back in custody after escaping from a slaughterhouse in West Baltimore Friday morning, according to police.
The bulls were confined to an area in the 2600 block of Pennsylvania Avenue near North Avenue as authorities worked for several hours to corral them inside a trailer.
This is not the first time this has happened in Baltimore or even to this particular slaughterhouse.
Neighbors say the trouble started around 6 a.m. Friday morning when they heard a commotion outside their bedroom windows.
"Looked at the news, and I saw that the area looked familiar and I said that might be right here, because there's a slaughterhouse across the street," Pleas Gethers said.
The apartment complex across the street from the old Ruppersberger and Sons Wholesale building became the pen, where police and workers from the business corralled the two bulls and eventually got them back into the cattle car.
The bulls belong to Old Line Custom Meat Company. Residents were advised to take extra precaution in the area, urged by police officers to stand back.
