(Alexandria, MN) TNT-F381 is safely back in its pen.  That’s the ear tag on an Angus bull that was roaming the south side of Alexandria early Sunday morning. Around 6:00am the Douglas County Dispatch put out a warning to the community that a bull was on the loose.  People had seen him near Menards.  Another person reported seeing it in the Target parking lot.  Douglas County Public information Officer Julie Anderson says the dispatchers were tasked with trying to find the owner.

After a Code Red alert and several social media posts the owner of the bull was located.  Incidentally the owner of the bull is from the northern portion of the county, yet the bull was seen roaming around the southern part of the city.  Eventually the bull was corralled and taken away.
