"And then we saw the bull starting to run after people..."

From the Pioneer Press:
A bull named Saber got away from its owner today at the Minnesota State Fair and died after running into a fire hydrant.

The incident occurred about 9:15 a.m., said State Fair spokeswoman Brienna Schuette.

Thursday was a changeover day and new animals were being brought to the Fair today.

As the 1,600-pound bull was being unloaded, it got away and "ran about a block down the street to the All You Can Drink milk booth" near Judson Avenue and Clough Street, Schuette said.

"It got spooked and head-butted a fire hydrant," she said.

A flatbed truck took the bull away.
"We feel like the Lord took the bull away and got us out of a very bad situation," said Jim Wulf, owner of Saber.

some have surmized that the red fire hydrants color played apart in the Bulls suicide. Its widely proven that bulls are color blind; yet emotional animals.
I think he just couldn't cope with the idea of all the laxatives he would soon be eating to enable him to supply the republican booth at the fair; and instead took his own life the only way he could.
