The bull was said to be ‘extremely agitated’ and considered a danger to the public. Police warned members of the public not to approach the animal and to remain inside their properties during the incident.
A spokesperson for Dyfed-Powys Police said: ”Dyfed-Powys Police received a report of an escaped bull at approximately 10.30am this morning.
The animal travelled from Cig Calon to Black Lion Road. The road had to be closed to protect the public.
A number of options to safely contain and deal with the bull were considered but none were found to be feasible and so after seeking advice from experts the only safe option left was to humanely destroy the animal at approximately 11.35am.
Black Lion Road has been re-opened.”
