The Madison County Sheriff’s Office is telling people not to approach a 1,400-pound rodeo bull currently on the loose.

The office says it is in the area of Moores Mill Road from Winchester to Hwy. 72 East and Chase to Meridian to Wholesale in the wooded areas of these locations.

The sheriff's office said the bull, named Half Moon, escaped his holding area on Feb. 22 during a rodeo at the Alabama A&M Agribition Center. The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the search by using a helicopter but was not able to locate the bull.

Half Moon is brindle in color with a half-white face. 

It is believed the bull is located between Meridian Street/Shields Road/Winchester Road/Hwy 72.

If you see the bull, call the sheriff’s office at 256-722-7181.
