An escaped bull wreaked havoc as it rampaged down a residential street and was chased by police cars.

The boisterous beast can be seen bounding along the street in the video from North Muirton, Perth, this week, as several emergency vehicles follow with their lights flashing.

Local bus services in the Scottish town were thrown into chaos as a result of the incident, while one school in the area had to close its gates for the safety of its pupils.

A police van tried to stop the bull from charging on by overtaking it and blocking the road — but the crafty bull managed to evade the attempted trap.

The animal, believed to have escaped from a local abattoir in a desperate bid for freedom, was eventually cornered and shot dead.

Residents of the Scottish town took to social media to share their opinions on the incident, and some on Facebook saw the funny side of the situation.

North Muirton local Jonathan Hess joked that there was "a new gangster roaming the streets".

Others, meanwhile, shared their relief at being inside whilst the bull charged around the town.

Many were also saddened by the tragic conclusion of the story.

The video was captioned: "Wee shame. Heard it escaped from [the local abattoir] will be running for it's [sic] life!".

Another resident Hollie Syme commented: "Wish I could go and get him and stick him in our field with the horses, poor boy".

Thankfully no residents were injured in the bull bonanza, although similar occurrences have led to fatalities in the past.

In 2018, an organised bull run in the city of Arcos de la Frontera near Jerez in southern Spain for an Easter festival resulted in the terrible death of one reveller.

As locals ran to escape the bull, it charged at the man and pierced his lungs before tossing him to the ground.

He was rushed to hospital but died later from his injuries.
