A bull was wrangled up after taking a stroll through a Las Vegas neighborhood Wednesday. 

Las Vegas Metro police said they received a call about the animal at about 3 a.m. in the area of Vegas Drive and Rancho Drive. 

It was not immediately clear how the bull got loose but despite offers from FOX's Mike Doria to capture the bull, officials were able to corral the animal.

Officers from Metro's Bolden Area Command reached out to animal control officials and others with experience to capture the animal. With the help of a cowboy and his horse, the bull was placed in a trailer near Martin Luther King Boulevard and Washington Avenue at about 7 a.m.

The City of Las Vegas said the animal control team is taking it to a livestock vet and then Horseman's Park to be housed until it can be reunited with its owner or rehomed. On Feb. 20, Kelly Leahy with the Animal Foundation said the bull is in the process to become adopted and they have received multiple inquiries by several people for its adoption.
