Thunder on the hoof! Again!

Today, a runaway bull reportedly wreaked a bovine brand of havoc throughout the morning in Fort Collins before being shot with three tranquilizer darts and led, dazed, into a waiting trailer.

Pretty impressive -- at least until the bull's performance is compared to that of a cow in Evans, which earlier this month kept authorities from multiple agencies on the run for nearly 24 hours, even kicking off a police car's bumper before finally being brought to justice. Bad-ass -- and that's no bull.
