 (WPTV) A Florida police officer shot and killed a charging bull Wednesday as it advanced on a group of children at a Fellsmere bus stop.

“We were all scared. The moment that the bull was going to our bus stop, everybody started running into the woods everywhere,” said Yasmin Linares.

A Fellsmere police officer arrived on scene moments after a witness placed a 911 call and tried to distract the bull.

“The bull turned, faced him and charged him,” said Fellsmere Police Chief Keith Touchberry.

The officer fired three shots as the bull knocked him over, injuring his ankle.

The officer then got on the radio and said, “He’s not down…he’s chasing the kids.”
