A BULL that bolted from a barn in Peru caused panic in a village near the capital Lima, damaging a police car and slightly injuring a woman before its capture.
Weighing in at 500 kilograms, "David" escaped Thursday night after a fight with another bull in Villa El Salvador, a village near the Peruvian capital, said barn owner Jonas Pareja.
The animal headed to a nearby hill, but later roamed the streets of the village, causing an uproar among residents, who quickly fled their homes, police said on Friday.
The bull slammed into a woman, who was slightly injured, and also badly damaged a police patrol car police before being cornered by police on Friday morning.
"The bull is usually easygoing, but the escape stressed him out and caused some problems," said the owner.
