Haughton, La (KMSS) — The Bossier Sheriff’s Office and Louisiana Livestock Brand Commission are asking motorists and residents to be on the lookout for a loose bull in the Haughton area this afternoon.
A 1,500 pound, 2-year-old white Charolais bull got loose from its owner’s trailer while at an animal clinic on the 5600 block of Highway 80 in Haughton just around noon today.
Deputies, veterinarians and volunteers have been searching for the bull, but have yet to locate him.
