TSU issued a “loose livestock” emergency alert. An all-clear advisory was issued shortly after 10:30 a.m. when the bull, according to school authorities, was no longer on campus.

The animal was captured later in the afternoon in a neighborhood near the university. The bull was returned to a livestock trailer.

Authorities did not immediately provide information on who owns the bull or how the animal ended up on the TSU campus, about 30 miles south of Austin.
