We had quite a mystery on our hands this morning, when all of South St. Louis seemed focused on finding an errant young bull. Sammy was making a break for freedom, after the early Thursday morning accident that broke his bondage inside a crowded tractor trailer. When he was finally spotted this morning, he had managed to make it south of Gasconade, along the Mississippi. We all had high hopes that he would be captured...as we watched Skyzoom 4 video watch raw video here
At first, no one realized what happened, and it was easy to jump to conclusions that the bull had been killed by one of the many police or emergency personnel on the ground. But Sammy's brief taste of freedom ended tragically after a fall into a ravine. There was no human interference. Maybe nature kicked in, and saved him from an uncertain future - where freedom was not an option.
