California woman wakes to find bull in her backyard
FRESNO, Calif. (WHDH) -- How'd you like to wake up to a raging 1,500-pound bull in your back yard?
Well, it happened to Yesenia Ochoa, at her home in southwest Fresno.
"When I looked outside the window, W seen there's a big bull on the side of our house, and all of a sudden, he jams into the side fence,” said Ochoa.
So, how did it get there? Construction workers there saw the bull pass by. It made its way around the neighborhood and eventually to Ochoa’s backyard. In all, the bull made about a 3-mile trek.
"He decided to turn his rear towards me and kick the bike. They're very athletic, even though they're big and they look clumsy,” said Officer Tom Harden.
Fortunately, the bike didn't fall, and Harden wasn't hurt. But it was in Ochoa's back yard that things got wild.
"The bull appeared that we was going to charge. He got down low, started pawing the ground, looking straight at us. So I swung the rope at him and lucky for us, he decided to go the other way. He turned and ran right in the trailer,” said Harden.
And so the bull's journey came to an end. It was too big to store at the SPCA, so it was taken to Cargill Meats. From there the owner was contacted and picked up.
