November 2, 2006

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) _ It’s no bull _ a Taser doesn’t faze cattle. Johnson City police found that out Monday afternoon while trying to force a bull and cow off a city street.

Officers fired the electric stun gun at the animals after they escaped from a nearby farm and wandered around several major intersections and roadways in the city of about 55,500 people.

The Taser didn’t budge the bovines, according to a police report.

The cattle were brought under control after officers used a tranquilizer gun, police said.
