In a Facebook post, the Dodge County Sheriff's Office says it is aware of a loose bull that escaped from the area of the Milwaukee Stockyards near State Highway 16/60 and County Highway J on Friday afternoon, Nov. 10. This area is somewhat between Reeseville and Lowell, and east of the Columbus area in southwest Dodge County.

If anyone sees the bull, they are asked to contact the Dodge County Sheriff's Office immediately with as detailed of a location as possible. Use 911 if it is an emergency, or call the non-emergency number 920-386-3726. The sheriff's office does not want people to report new sightings in social media comments, unless they have already called the sheriff's office, as it is not monitored for incoming information.

The sheriff's office has been asked to euthanize the animal if it is located because of the threat it would pose to people. It will update the Facebook post with any physical description of the bull when it receives it.
