Bull rampages through bank in central Israel
Owner and municipal veterinarian called to Leumi facility in Lod to capture and restrain bovine; bank says no injuries or damages
Financial institutions normally welcome a bull market, but workers at Bank Leumi in the central city of Lod were not amused on Monday when an angry bull bashed into several cars in their parking lot before charging through the hallways.
The bull’s owner, a resident of the city, was called to the bank offices to help extract the bovine. Video showed several people baiting the bull, trying to get it to charge down a corridor and into a makeshift trap they had made that would allow them to tie a rope around it.
The Lod Municipality said a city-employed veterinarian eventually stunned the bull to make it easier to restrain him.
“It was captured and brought outside the compound,” the bank said in a statement, referring to the bull, which was seen in a video lying in the dirt as people tied it up.
There were no reports of injures and the bank said no damage was caused.
It was not immediately clear how the bull found its way to the building, nor if it had been planning on making a deposit.
