Bull wanders away, attacks house
By AP Wire Service
KILLINGLY, Conn. (AP), Sep 22 _ An escaped and raging bull attacked a neighbor's home, tearing off siding, tearing down part of a fence, and damaging a car.
Wayne Johnson said he found the bull in his yard at about 8 a.m. Friday. It had wandered in from a nearby farm.
While he watched, the bull repeatedly charged his house, tore off clapboards, flipped a picnic table, rammed his car and tore down part of the fence around his swimming pool, he said.
``He was crazy,'' Johnson said. ``The thing was ripping my house apart.''
Johnson called police, who called the state Department of Agriculture. They suggested finding the farmer who owns the animal.
Eventually, a neighbor was able to lure the bull away with a bag of grain, and led the bull back to its pasture.
Johnson said he's planning to talk to the bull's owner about getting his house repaired. He said he has no idea what caused the bull to become so aggressive.
``My house isn't red, he joked ``It's grayish blue.''
