Caught on Camera: Bull rams deputy's patrol car

MONTGOMERY, Alabama (KTRK) -- Video of a deputy's patrol car being rammed by a bull in Alabama -- while the deputy was inside the vehicle -- is gaining popularity.

The incident first happened back in July, but the video was recently posted online, making it go viral.

Deputies got a call from a woman about livestock damaging property in her yard.

The animal had escaped from its owner's property about a mile away.

As deputies tried to corral the bull, it took aim for a sheriff deputy's vehicle, lifting it off the ground.

Deputy Scott Spurlock was inside while this was happening.

"It didn't feel as bad as it looks in the video," Spurlock said.

The bull damaged the front and the back of the car.

Spurlock says he was not hurt and that he wasn't scared.

Officials returned the bull to its owner who decided to have the animal put down after it escaped again.
