Police in North Texas have shot and killed a bull that ran loose across a highway before trampling two people.

Alvarado police said officers shot the bull because it posed a deadly threat.

Authorities did not reveal who owns the bull or how it got loose.

Police said the bull was charging at people on Wednesday near I-35 in Alvarado, 20 miles south of Fort Worth.

The bull crossed the highway several times and was almost struck by cars before police were able to close the interstate.

After leaving the highway, the bull ran toward an area with multiple businesses and a residential zone.

Police say they shot the animal after it started charging at people, trampling two men who worked at a car parts business. The men required hospital treatment.
