(AP) SHERWOOD, Ark. - A bull in the mood for love damaged an Arkansas sheriff's patrol car when it tried to mount a man who was leading the animal across a yard.

Authorities said Wednesday that a Faulkner County sheriff's deputy was responding to a call about a bull running loose when he saw the man slapping and trying to guide the bull.

The Log Cabin Democrat reports that as the patrol car drew near, the animal reared up and pinned the man against the vehicle. According to the deputy's report, the bull then "tried to mate with him."

The bull then lost interest and followed a truck down the road.

The patrol car sustained minor damage, though no injuries were reported. The bull's owner says it was the animal's first escape.
