A bull escaped from the slaughterhouse and onto the tracks at Newark Penn Station on Thursday, December 14th. He interfered with NJ Transit trains between Newark and Penn Station in New York, after which he was caught and sent to an animal shelter, writes Audacy.

The bull was first reported around 10:30 a.m. Video footage shows the young longhaired bull standing directly on the tracks at Newark-Penn (at one point he even walks down the tracks) as stunned passengers look on from the platforms.

“I thought I'd seen it all, but this is something new,” said one NJ Transit rider.

“Good morning, travelers,” the station dispatcher announced. “Because of the obstruction on the tracks, all trains are delayed.”

During the bull's walk along the rails, train delays reached 45 minutes, but by 12:30 p.m., traffic was already on schedule. The incident even attracted the attention of the governor. Phil Murphy, who wrote: “I've always been confident about the future of Jersey, but this is too much guys.”

Mike Stura, founder of Skylands Animal Sanctuary & Rescue in rural Sussex County, wrote in Facebookthat he was “already on his way” to the scene of the incident. There were hundreds of comments on his page: people asked to save the animal from death and called Stur an “angel.”

The bull eventually left the station and was found around 10:45 a.m. behind a building near Newark Liberty International Airport, officials said. He was driven into a fenced area at the intersection of Frelinghuysen Avenue and Victoria Street, then tranquilized and loaded into a cattle trailer. He escaped from the local slaughterhouse in Newark, but will spend the rest of his life at the local animal shelter. Animal advocates were looking into the transfer of the fugitive.

Stura later shared the photo and said the bull was safe but heavily sedated. “His name is Ricardo. Thank you everyone for the hundreds of calls you tried to notify me about his situation.”
