Dane County deputies shoot runaway steer


BLACK EARTH (AP) -- Dane County sheriff's deputies had to shoot a runaway steer in the village of Black Earth on Thursday.

The steer was being delivered to Black Earth Meats when it escaped between the trailer and the building. It ran into a residential area, taking out a fence in the process.

After deputies shot the animal, it was taken by a skid loader back to Black Earth Meats to be processed.

Black Earth Elementary School was on lock-down for a short time during the incident.
