A bull rather miraculously escaped injury after it fell through the floor of a moving trailer near Cromwell Saturday.
Fire and police personnel originally responded to a report of an accident involving a horse trailer on Orange Street, but then discovered the incident actually happened in a horse track just west of town, and didn't involve a collision. What they did discovered, at about 3:45 p.m., was that a trailer floor apparently caved in, dropping a bull through onto the road. It was reportedly dragged a short distance before the driver could get stopped.
Although there were reports that the animal was bleeding, it apparently wasn't seriously injured and was corralled without difficulty.
The Noble County Sheriff's Department and Cromwell Fire Department responded to the incident.
