A bull-ish, bear-ish Boise day

Two animal incidents marked the news yesterday in Boise: A bear found wandering in the North End, which was tranquilized and taken off to the forest north of Lowman for release; and a bull rampaging down the Greenbelt in Eagle after breaking out of its pasture.

Initially, authorities warned people to beware on the Greenbelt near Merrill Park yesterday morning as they hunted for the bull, but no capture was ever reported. “They didn’t seem very concerned by yesterday afternoon,” said Ada County Sheriff’s spokesman Patrick Orr. “It was swimming in the river. … They were pretty confident it was going to swim back to the pasture it broke out of.” More here.
