ISHPEMING, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say they safely captured a 1,500-pound bull that was on the loose in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula near the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame.

WBUP/WBKP-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1sob2Px ) Ishpeming police responded just before 11 p.m. Friday to a call about the bull. Police Chief Dan Wiley says the animal was “skittish.” Police were able to keep the bull from running and a local veterinarian eventually helped get it into a trailer.

Willey says it took about two hours to capture the bull. He says they were “trying to get a rope around its horns or its head and it wouldn’t really let us do that.”

Willey says it wasn’t immediately known how the bull got loose or where it came from.
