The bulls are now in custody, according to the Baltimore Police Department’s Twitter feed.
The two animals had escaped earlier in the morning from a slaughterhouse in the area and were roaming city streets. They were cornered in a grassy area of an apartment complex for a while, and police warned residents to be careful.
Now they are captured.
“Thanks for everyone’s patience,” Baltimore police said on Twitter. A video showed a truck with a trailer attached. The bulls were inside.
Police said the animals escaped from the George G. Ruppersberger and Sons slaughterhouse. A phone call to that business said that company was now partnered with the Old Line Custom Meat Company.
PETA on Friday afternoon said three animal sanctuaries had offered refuge for the bulls. A person who answered the phone earlier in the day at the Old Line Meat Company said, “No comment.”

Two bulls escaped Friday morning from a slaughterhouse in Baltimore and were seen in a nearby parking lot and grassy area.
Baltimore police said the incident happened about 6:30 a.m. and that the two animals were just walking through the parking lot and eating grass. Workers from the slaughterhouse were trying to catch them and bring them back, officials said.
Police warned residents to use caution. The bulls are in the area of Pennsylvania Avenue and N. Woodyear Street.
There were no reported injuries.
By 9:30 a.m., officials said the bulls were at least “contained for now” in an area near an apartment complex. And there was a bit of joking.
