Police Hunt Down Bull Running Free in Downtown Lamia, Central Greece

A rather …peculiar spectacle was viewed by people in the Greek city of Lamia on Friday morning, when a bull on the lam charged through city streets, reaching the city center of the Central Greece municipality.

Amazed onlookers who saw the large animal walking and running free along Papapostolou Street in central Lamia immediately called the police.

The animal was seen at times simply walking along the street, looking rather lost.

Nearby drivers and pedestrians were understandably quite concerned that the big animal could unwittingly cause damage to the shops in the area or even cause serious traffic accidents.

Police officers managed to lead the animal to a fenced-in area near a local military camp, where they then managed to catch it, avoiding further disruption and any possible mayhem which could have occurred.
