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.
