Authorities say a 1,600-pound bull that escaped from a resident’s property in Barrington Hills nearly a week ago has been captured by a professional wrangler.

The Barrington Hills Police Department issued an alert to residents last Friday.

The alert said a stray bull was last seen in the area of Route 62 and Old Sutton Road.

Barrington Hills Police Department Press Information Officer William Walsh told Lake and McHenry County Scanner the bull escaped from a resident’s property near the intersection.

The brown and white male bull was reported to not be friendly and went missing overnight between August 24 and August 25, Walsh said.

Officials said anyone who spotted the bull should not approach it and instead call 911 immediately.

A resident who lives a half-mile north of where the bull escaped captured surveillance photos of it wandering their property.

The bull is approximately 1,600 pounds but officials said they were not aware of its name.

Walsh said in an update Thursday that the owner of the bull hired 2B Wild Cattle Catching Services.

The company, owned by Wesley Bush, located the bull around 3:30 p.m. Thursday in the same area where it went missing.

Bush successfully captured the bull, which will be relocated, Walsh said.

In September 2021, a female bison was being corralled into an enclosure from a trailer when she managed to escape from Milk and Honey Farmstead in nearby Wauconda.

The animal had been spotted dozens of times by Wauconda and Island Lake residents, who took videos and photos and posted them on social media.

Officials said they believed she settled at Lakewood Forest Preserve in unincorporated Wauconda in April 2022.

In late May 2022, Lake County Forest Preserve officials said they worked for days with a professional livestock specialist to capture the bison.

The alleged owner of the bison was charged following the ordeal. He was later found not guilty at trial.
