NEW YORK (AP) — A bull is still on the run in New York, a day after it broke loose from a slaughterhouse farm.

Suffolk County Police said the bull busted through a farm fence Tuesday morning and still has not been found on Wednesday, Newsday reported.

The bull was spotted in the yards of multiple homes on Tuesday. Social media users shared sightings of the bull throughout the day, the newspaper said.

Police and other animal rescue agencies are still attempting to capture the bull.

“We’re here on horseback with lassos, and we’re just trying to get him before any accident, before any kind of damage is done to him or anybody else,” Frank Floridia of Strong Island Animal Rescue said.

Another group, Long Island Orchestrating for Nature, said they have a “tranquilizer gun ready to secure him.”
