Sept. 9 (UPI) -- Firefighters in North Carolina responded to a stretch of highway to remove an unusual traffic hazard -- an escaped bull.

The Winston-Salem Fire Department said crews responded Wednesday to the northbound lanes of Highway 52 on a report of an animal in traffic.


The firefighters arrived to find a bull wandering in the roadway near the Westinghouse Exit.

The department tweeted video of firefighters wrangling the loose bovine into a trailer.

Officials said they have not determined whether the bull escaped from a livestock trailer or if it wandered onto the highway from elsewhere.

The bull was taken to Forsyth County Animal Control to be examined by veterinarians.
