News Release
Loose Steer at Roseburg High School - 02/13/20

At approximately 0547 hours on February 13th, 2020 a citizen called to report a black angus steer got out of their trailer while they were near milepost #124 on Interstate 5 in Roseburg.  The owner of the steer said he was trying to locate it and keep it from getting on the freeway, and he believed it would need to be put down.

The steer made its way to the Roseburg High School parking lot where it was put down.

The owner of the steer was able to remove it and load it back in the trailer afterward.  There were no students on the campus at the time of this incident.

The Roseburg Police Department later received calls of a large pool of blood on the ground near the visitor's center on SE Spruce in Roseburg.  It was determined this also was from the steer, as the owner pulled to the side of the road in that area after leaving Roseburg High School.
