Runaway bull blocks traffic on roads, highways in Philadelphia

CENTER CITY -- A runaway bull tied up traffic on the streets and highways of Center City Philadelphia Tuesday afternoon.

It was around 2 p.m. when the animal escaped from a slaughterhouse located on the 2100 block of North Hancock Street, and made a break for it.

At one point the animal was weaving through vehicles in the southbound lanes of I-95 before wandering onto Route 676.

The bull then off-ramped and was cornered by authorities on 7th Street between Vine and Franklin streets. It was there that the bull was euthanized by the Pennsylvania Game Commission.

No police or civilians were injured in the incident.
