Columbia police and Illinois State Police assisted in attempting to capture a black bull with horns that was running loose in the area of I-255 near the Jefferson Barracks Bridge.

Motorists were advised to use caution while driving in that area. The reports came in about 2:15 p.m. Wednesday.

The owner of the bull, who lives off Davis Street Ferry Road in East Carondelet, was contacted and arrived at the scene to help wrangle the rogue bull.

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources Conservation Police were also dispatched to the scene.

Columbia Fire Department personnel also responded for assistance and the bull was steered to a wooded area off Ramsey Road near the levee.

The owner used a lasso to eventually capture the bull and the incident ended at 3 p.m.
