Conn. town vexed trying to catch bull on the loose

MILFORD, Conn. (AP) — A posse hopes to soon catch Waldo, a bull that escaped from a farm in July and has been on the loose in the coastal city of Milford, Conn.

The Connecticut Post reports (http://bit.ly/vJNUpx ) that an attempt to corral the 700-pound black Angus failed Nov. 20. In the next few weeks, officials will try again.

Milford animal control officer Rick George says Waldo has been traveling with and grazing with a herd of deer. Last month, volunteers put up a steel fence around Waldo’s hideout in Milford but he rammed it and escaped.

George says about 20 veterinarians, representatives of the state Department of Agriculture and others plan to track down Waldo in the next few weeks, trap him and move him to an animal sanctuary.
