WORLAND, Wyo. (AP) — A bull that apparently didn't want to be put on the auction block escaped from the livestock sale in Worland and later barged into a home across town.

The bull darted from the Worland Livestock Auction grounds west of the city just before noon Wednesday. About 15 minutes later, he went through an open door of a home about two miles away and down the stairs into the basement.

The Associated Press says police and auction workers were on his tail but couldn't coax him out.

The bull was eventually tranquilized with help from veterinarian Dan Miller, who described the bull as "mean, grumpy, upset, excited."

The animal also weighs 1,400 pounds and left behind quite a bit of damage to the home's walls and stairs.
