A police investigation into an escaped rodeo bull that injured 10 people at the Harford Fair on Friday night has concluded that the animal’s release was accidental, according to a release sent today by the Pennsylvania State Police.
Four bulls got loose as they were being loaded onto a trailer at the fair in Susquehanna County shortly before 11 p.m. Three of those animals were immediately captured, while one went on a
rampage around the fairgrounds.
Ten people were taken to area hospitals – nine via ambulance and one in a helicopter – with injuries ranging from minor to moderate. Some of those victims
suffered direct contact with the bull, while others were hurt as the crowd attempted to run away.
Luckily, at least one brave attendee thought to whip out his camera phone. Here’s video footage of the bull wreaking havoc that was released on YouTube yesterday:
