PLEASANT GROVE, Utah (AP) -- A runaway bull smashed three police cars and an animal control officer's truck before it was shot as it approached a Utah interstate.

Pleasant Grove police Capt. Michael Smith says the bull got loose Wednesday afternoon in Pleasant Grove and headed to American Fork. Along the way it crashed through fences, bullied through traffic and prompted several 911 calls.

Police tried to corral it but came out on the losing end. The animal crushed the hood of one police car, damaged two others and ripped the grill off an animal control truck.

Two traffic accidents were also related to the bull's spree.

Officers decided to shoot the bull before it reached Interstate 15.
