A raging bull, seemingly no longer content to be the plaything of our decadent ways, broke loose at the Dakota County Fair Wednesday evening, injuring eight people on its rampage.

According to Dakota County Sheriff David Bellows, the rampage began at about 8:15 p.m. when the bull escaped from its pen. It was eventually brought down by an unnamed sheriff’s deputy who fired two shots into the animal as it charged him.

Of the eight people injured, only one required extensive medical attention. The woman in question was airlifted to a nearby hospital immediately following the incident.
