Five Texas Longhorn bulls, including one calf, escaped from their owner Thursday and were loose in the Spring Grove and Johnsburg area, authorities said.

The Johnsburg Junior High School posted a photo just before 9 a.m. Thursday of a loose calf that had been roaming on the school grounds.

“Exciting morning at JJHS today,” the school said in the post.

The Johnsburg Police Department said several Texas Longhorn cattle got loose in the Johnsburg area Thursday morning.

The owner was attempting to capture the animals, police said. The bull spotted at the high school is a six-month-old.

In an update Thursday afternoon, police said the 6-month-old calf had been captured.

The four other Texas Longhorns wandered to Spring Grove and were still on the loose as of Thursday evening.

The owner was working with several volunteers to capture them, police said.
