Police received multiple calls about a young bull on the loose in Christchurch on Thursday morning.
The bull was seen near Barrington St in Addington around 6:30am.
Police and animal control finally managed to track the bull down in Sydenham cemetery around 7am, a police spokesperson told Newshub.
It's believed the animal came from the stockyards near the Canterbury A&P showgrounds.
A spokesperson from the Christchurch City Council said the bull has now been collected by its owners.
