A bull escaped the Redding Rodeo Friday night, leaping over a fence and striking six people in the process.
The escape occurred during the final section of the bull riding event at the popular Northern California rodeo. Video taken during the event shows a bull buck off its rider. It then jumped over an arena fence, hitting several people in its panic to break free. According to Redding Rodeo officials, the bull “ran out of the rodeo grounds and towards the contestant parking area” and was eventually corralled by livestock handlers “near the Sundial Bridge and immediately placed in a trailer.” The distance from the Redding Rodeo Grounds to the Sundial Bridge is a little under half a mile.
