Bull Struck, Killed By Car In Lawrence County Was Show Animal
PULASKI, Pa. —
A bull killed when it was hit by a car in Lawrence County turned out to be a prized animal that was going to be shown at the Lawrence County Fair this week.
Gail Phillips, of Pulaski Township, said the 2-year-old bull named Huey pushed open a gate and escaped from its trailer at their GNS Farms on Friday. Township police said a car driven by Jason Schreckengost, of Rimersburg, hit the bull on Route 422 that night.
Schreckengost was treated at a hospital for injuries, but has since been discharged.
Phillips said the animal was "a very high quality show bull" but says the farm's animals were also pets for the family's children.
A heifer that also escaped from the same trailer couldn't be found that night, but found its way home Saturday.
