Very sad....I guess better than the slaughterhouse. Small comfort though.

You have got to be kidding me. If the bull could be shot with a gun then it could have been darted and tranquilized. Traffic could have been stopped or slowed. SWAT at it's finest - go right for the kill.

Somebody could have ponied up and caught it. Ridgefield is Rodeo and the Clark County Fair country. Heck there are cowgirls all over the place! Hate for them to have put out a call for assist. I'm pretty sure they could have got someone out there with in 5 hours to do it.
