Captured on camera: Runaway bull batters mailbox

Police in New Jersey handled an unusual battery case last week – involving a runaway bull who did not appreciate a certain mailbox.

The bull, a nine-month-old named Butch, was seen playing with and knocking over the mailbox. 

In body camera footage posted to the Stafford Township Police Department’s Facebook page, a bull can be seen licking the mailbox, hooking it from underneath with its horn and yanking the box and post down. Once on the ground, the animal is then seen pushing the mailbox along the ground with its head.
