Bull shot after running loose on Highway 4
A bull made a run down Contra Costa County's Highway 4 Monday morning after escaping from a nearby ranch.
The animal ran with traffic for awhile, but then jumped the median and started running against traffic.
The California Highway Patrol closed the westbound lanes of the highway and cornered the bull but officers were concerned that it would get back out on the roadway and cause an injury accident so they say they had no choice but to shoot it.
