It’s no cock-and-bull story.
A runaway bull shut down a stretch of the Sunrise Highway in Suffolk County on Tuesday — with cops telling locals to steer clear as they tried to wrangle the beast, police said.
“It’s a loose bull,” Suffolk police told The Post. “We do not know where it is right now. It was running on the highway.”
The animal was spotted shortly before 8:30 a.m. by a Mastic resident who called police, prompting cops to issue an alert for residents to stay in their homes, Patch reported.
Police shut down the highway at Exit 58 to try to corral the animal but opened the road after 20 minutes when it ran off, the outlet said.
The bull was then spotted shortly after 10:30 a.m. on Lafayette Avenue in Mastic but remains on the loose, the report said.
