A bull on the loose is putting the fear into a small village in northern Sweden where it has been spotted several times after repeatedly escaping from its owner.

At the local school in the village of Öhn, just 10 kilometres from the town of Sollefteå, school principal Mattias Alenhed says staff, pupils and parents are concerned.

“We’ve seen it four or five times over the past 10 days… Some of the kids have named it Ferdinand because it’s been peaceful. But to tell you the truth, we’ve also been very worried. Something can happen, you never know.”

The bull faces an uncertain future as local authorities say it will either be caught and brought back to its owner or put down.
