SAN MARCOS, TX -- Learning about livestock took on new meaning at Texas State University when a bull wandered onto the campus.

Nobody was hurt Wednesday when the bull was seen roaming the grounds of the school in San Marcos.

TSU issued a "loose livestock" emergency alert. An all-clear advisory was issued shortly after 10:30 a.m. CDT Wednesday when the bull, according to school authorities, was no longer on campus.

The animal was captured Wednesday afternoon in a neighborhood near the university and returned to a livestock trailer.

Authorities did not immediately provide information on who owns the bull or how the animal ended up on the TSU campus, about 30 miles south of Austin.
