“Holy cow!”

This was the expression most people of east Richmond and motorists in Queensborough were sharing on social media when a "young bull" was spotted running through the neighbourhood on Saturday afternoon.

According to Twitter posts, the young bull was on the loose at the border of east Richmond heading through Queensborough towards Burnaby.

However, the bull appeared to have travelled back and forth in the area looking lost for a portion of the afternoon.

New Westminster Police had southbound Queensborough blocked off around 4 p.m., with the bull heading westbound on Westminster Highway by Gilley Road with “a police escort” according to various Twitter posts.

Videos of the confused bull were posted onto various social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.

In one video, shared by Richmond resident Myriah Hayward, the bull was running through Westminster Highway.

Hayward commented that it was a “crazy sight to see,” but felt bad because the bull looked scared.

Several minutes later, it was reported that the bull had turned around and was heading north on Highway 91A towards Howe Street.

“It really doesn’t want to go into #Burnaby or #NewWest so now (it) turned back south on Highway 91A towards #RichmondBC #DeltaBC,” reads an AM730Traffic tweet.

By 5 p.m., the bull was seen heading North, once again, towards Queensborough and had gotten off at the Marine Way off-ramp towards Market Crossing in Burnaby.

It is unclear what happened to the bull at this time.

The Richmond News has reached out to New Westminster Police and Burnaby RCMP for comment.
