‘I couldn’t believe my eyes,’ John Cummins, owner of the SuperValu store in Ballinrobe, Ireland, said of his bizarre experience with a runaway bull.

The bull, as captured on this closed-circuit surveillance video, took a whirlwind tour of Cummins’ store when he escaped from a local market. After he’d knocked over some produce and thoroughly frightened shoppers and staff, the bull was safely corralled by its owner -- but not before giving punsters the opportunity to make any number of ‘Supermarket Sweep’ references.
