Earlier this week, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department in North Carolina began their search for a 900-pound bull.

According to animal officials and the owner, while moving the animal into an enclosed area to help it get out of the storm, the bull escaped and made its way into town.

Officials have tried several times to capture it. However, the bull has been very elusive and escaped into neighboring woods. Even local SWAT was called in to assist. They used a heat-seeking drone to no avail.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the bull has not been found.
