BALTIMORE (WJZ)West Baltimore looked a little like the Wild Wild West on Friday morning. A steer running through the streets of Baltimore catches the attention of drivers and police. This after it escaped from a city slaughterhouse.

This was a major story this morning, as apparently the steer went all over the place and caused lots of traffic problems, both directly and indirectly.
MD ping, as if no one in the area knew about it already.
Well, it’s not like it was a moose, or something...
The cop probably mistook it for a dog.
A moose once bit my sister..
LOL this happened a couple years ago in my town. The farmer apparently didn’t back up his trailer close enough to the platform at the slaughter house; the bull got loose and ran around town for a couple of hours. My neighbor, who was driving thru at the time, stopped and got video on his cell phone — this bull was exploring all sorts of houses and yards. Eventually the poor beast ran into some woods and was shot dead by police. Worst part of all of it, the state wouldn’t let it be sold for meat because of the potential of lead poisoning or some such, so I guess the farmer was SOL. About a week later the local paper quoted the slaughter house owner as saying “You need to be smarter than the animal you’re delivering.” LOL... pretty sure he lost a supplier!
Damn shame the Baltimore police don’t respond that way when thugs are running wild on their streets.
“...the steer went all over the place and caused lots of traffic problems...”
It needed an alignment.
The cops heard it was destined for the BBQ pit and thought it was a bull.
Everyone knows pit bulls get shot.
Read the comments at the link. Hilarious!
Of all the things Ive seen while driving along Norf (North) Avenue in Baltimore, a runaway steer would probably rank among the least scary.
Too bad he wasnt packing an Uzi.
Barney...Not again !
Now that was funny.
What, no cowboys, real men, in MaryLand to just rope it and lead it alway?
How many rounds did the SWAT team need to use to bring it down? Did they sortie their new MRAP surplus vehicle?
Probably after her cheese.
Thad Cochrane had it silenced, it knew too much.
Mynd you, moose bites Kan be pretti nasti...
Another good reason for concealed carry.
You never know when a crazy cow is going to come after you on the street!!
You aren’t kidding.
When I read early today that he had been around North Ave, I thought definitely they should’ve let the steer run loose and maybe hopefully take out a few of the thugs all over the city.
Maybe this is an idea for the crime problem!
But no, they shoot an innocent. But the scum rarely get caught and when it is so, come right back out to the streets.
I’m surprised he wasn’t shot by the local Trayvons and their many firearms rather than the police in this case.
