BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) - Gulf coast authorities are searching for a bull who wandered away from a pasture.

Authorities say a police officer was injured late Tuesday after his patrol car hit two other bulls belonging to the sheriff's office. The bulls are part of an inmate farm.

Authorities are urging drivers in the area to slow down in case the bull tries to cross the road.
