MARYBOROUGH, Australia, March 15 (UPI) -- An apparently escaped bull emerged from some woods in Australia to interrupt a youth soccer game and chase a player around the field.

Ryan Devenish, a spectator watching the game at Federation Park in Maryborough, Queensland, posted video to Facebook and YouTube of the bull interrupting Saturday's game.

The video shows the bull walking out of the trees and running after a player for a short time before fleeing back into the wooded area.

"The bull had escaped from a paddock next to the field and couldn't find its way back in," Devenish wrote in the video's description on YouTube. "It got bored and decided to attack some players."

There were no injuries and the game continued after the bull left.

"I'm sure [the players] would have been looking over their shoulder," Devenish told the Australian Bradcasting Corp. "I'm pretty positive the ref wouldn't have pulled out his red card after that."

The ultimate fate of the bull was unclear.
