A forbidding, four-legged escapee from a Nova Scotia farm is back in its barn, and destined once again for the slaughterhouse.

RCMP in Kingston said Monday that a one-tonne bull was reported missing from his pasture area Sunday evening.

The black and white bull was spotted fleeing into woods off Long Point Road towards Berwick, between Highway 1 and Highway 101.

Cpl. Andrew Joyce said the public was alerted out of concern it could collide with cars on the busy highway.

Rose Horsnell, the daughter of the bull's owner, Jan Speelman, said the farmer's 26-year-old grandson tracked the bull and found it travelled through a wooded area then returned to a barn on the property.

She said it's believed the bull had leaped over a fence that was over a metre-and-a-half high to get away.

Horsnell said the bull was on its way to the slaughterhouse before bolting from the farm.
