A bull roaming along the edges of Interstate 94 in central Minnesota prompted calls from concerned motorists early Friday morning.

The Stearns County Sheriff's Office says it was first called at 4:20 a.m., when the bull was seen along I-94 near the Sauk Centre exit.

The animal was said to be walking close to the highway near the exit, but efforts to locate the bull by Sauk Centre Police Department were unsuccessful.

But it popped up again a few hours later, when the Stearns County dispatch received a call from the State Patrol, after troopers spotted a black bull on the shoulder of I-94 at mile marker 124 in Saul Centre Township.

This time they managed to find the bull on the southwest side of the interstate in a ditch, with officers finding it to be a black Angus bull with two ear tags.

Efforts to locate the owner initially failed despite police contacting several farms in the area. They were eventually tracked down just before noon.

The bull was held in a pasture of a local farmer until the owner was located.
