Runaway bull prompts ‘aggressive cow’ alert on Kutztown University campus [video]

A runaway bull that was spotted running down Main Street in Kutztown prompted the Kutztown University Police Department to issue an “aggressive cow” alert after the animal made its way onto campus Sunday night.

The bovine appeared scared because it was unfamiliar with its surroundings, police said in the alert that went out via its emergency notification system about 7:15 p.m. It advised recipients to avoid the North Campus and to not approach the bull if encountered.

About 30 minutes later, campus police sent an update saying the animal’s owner from the Fleetwood area was on his way to retrieve the runaway. A third update sent about 8:45 p.m. indicated the threat to the campus community had ended, but the bull was reportedly still on the loose, last seen in Fleetwood.

It could not be verified Monday morning with Fleetwood police whether there were any livestock sightings in the borough and whether the bull was back in its owner’s possession.

A Berks County 911 supervisor said there were no calls Monday morning for wandering livestock.
