Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police are searching for a 900 pound longhorn bull that escaped Monday night in west Charlotte.

The owner was attempting to move the bull from a pasture to an enclosed area as severe weather moved through, but the animal was spooked and escaped.

The owner and CMPD Animal Care and Control are actively seeking any information regarding the bull’s whereabouts.

If anyone comes across the bull, they are asked to maintain a safe distance and contact 311 to provide the precise location.

CMPD Animal Care and Control is also working to learn if the owner has a livestock permit. A heat-seeking drone has been used to try and locate the bull.
