PEORIA -- Peoria police shot and killed a bull on the city's south side after it escaped from the local stock yards.

Police say the bull escaped late Sunday morning and was loose until they shot it early Monday.

Officers say they tracked the bull for two hours early Monday before shooting it.

According to police, people who work at the stock yards told them they had no way to catch or control the bull.

In February, a bull crashed into a home on the north side of Peoria. It wasn't clear at the time how that bull escaped from his handler or where he escaped from.
