Tucson cops help collar roaming bull

  • Updated

Tucson police and area ranchers help capture a A bull that got loose Tuesday in Rita Ranch.

No bull: Tucson police had to respond Tuesday morning to reports of a bull roaming a neighborhood near an elementary school.

The animal somehow got loose in Rita Ranch and police tweeted that the animal was spotted casually grazing on some scrub grass among the gravel along a home’s front lawn.

Police blocked off the street with their SUVS and ranchers in the area helped corral the bull before it was captured.

Police said ranchers were trying to help get the bull back to its rightful owner.

Joaquin, an 18-year-old Andean bear, is back at Reid Park Zoo after being born there in 2002. 

The roughly 400-pound bear's most recent home was the Philadelphia Zoo, but he was returned to Tucson after being deemed a potential breeding partner for Oja, Reid Park Zoo's female Andean bear. 

The zoo held a special welcoming for Joaquin, whose furry parents were Reid Park Zoo's own Worf and Lucy, the morning of Oct. 19, 2021.
