Waterloo Regional Police officers were called to deal with a bull running loose north of Waterloo.

The first reports of the bull were received late Tuesday morning, from the area of Benjamin Road and Bisch Street, east of Erbsville Road.

Eventually, the 300-kilogram bull was located near the tree farm on Benjamin. It was expected that the bull would be tranquilized.

It was not clear where the bull came from. There are a number of farms in the area.

The animal was brought under control before it caused any damage.
