Written by Ls Cohen  |  21. July 2021

Suffolk County Police confirmed this afternoon that the Mastic bull is still on the loose.

 

“We can confirm the bull was spotted overnight in a wooded area and police are conducting patrols for the bull,” the SCPD said in a statement.

 

Yesterday, around  8:20am, police received multiple reports of a bull running loose in Mastic and Shirley. The approximately 1,500 pound bull escaped from a farm, located at 136 Barnes Road in Manorville after breaking through a fence.

 

Parts of Sunrise Highway were shut down at one point during the search.

 

A fundraiser to find the bull a forever home once it is caught has already raised over $1,500 online, according to a report.

 

The Mastic bull has already inspired a bunch of memes on facebook. On being a “marked safe from Mastic bull” post and others comparing the Mastic bull to the famed Smithtown bull.
