NEWARK — A bull at Newark Penn Station caused delays on NJ Transit Thursday morning.

Newark police received a report that a bull was loose behind a building on Frelinghuysen Avenue near Victoria Street around 10:45 a.m. near the Northeast Corridor railroad tracks and the edge of Newark Liberty International Airport, Public Safety Director Fritz Fragé said.

NJ Transit posted a picture of the bull standing along the tracks under a platform at Newark Penn Station which led to 45-minute delays between Newark and New York Penn.

Fragé said that Newark police and Port Authority police located the bull in a fenced-in lot and were able to get it onto a trailer. The location of the lot or where the bull came from were not disclosed.

A Newark police trailer was captured on video leaving the area. The bull will be taken to a local animal sanctuary, according to Fragé.

As of 12:10 p.m., NJ Transit rail tickets and passes are still being cross-honored by PATH and Hoboken, Newark Penn and 33rd Street New York.
