Local authorities were warned at noon by neighbors who were traveling in various vehicles that a bunch of bulls were loose on the side of said state road and were at risk of being gored. Even the municipal officials in charge of the operation mentioned that there were 8 specimens loose, however, local cowboys maintained that only 6 fled from the “San Martín Caballero” ranch, whose owner is Mrs. Hilda Chacón May. 

The municipal authorities also asked the population of Kuchel to stay in their homes and try to avoid circulating on that stretch of road, which was closed by elements of the Municipal Police and Civil Protection.
