BRAILA, Romania - Police officers directing traffic may have to watch out for drivers who aren't paying attention, but usually not for bulls.

Closed-circuit video captured an encounter between a stray bull and a police officer at an intersection in Romania on Wednesday.

The bull walked across lanes of traffic and attacked the policeman.

He was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

As for the bull, it was cornered in an alley and shot with a tranquilizer.

Workers from the farm the bull escaped from finally managed to catch the animal. Police said an investigation would be launched to find out who was responsible for the bull's escape.
