SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Fear Factor wasn't done bucking after ditching his rider quickly in the Days of '47 rodeo.

The bull escaped the holding pen during his exit from the Delta Center and bolted for the streets Wednesday night, surprising late-night visitors to the Gateway Center, an upscale shopping center across the street from the arena.

The bull destroyed a table at an outdoor cafe after jumping down a 6-foot ledge, but there were no injuries.

"He's bigger than I was," said arena security guard Sharon Rudd. "We were trying to close the gate, but we weren't fast enough."

The bull's public rampage lasted only a few minutes before he was lassoed and returned to the rodeo.
