STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A rugby game in France had an exciting opener when a bull escaped onto the field. One of the team owners also runs a meat business, and he was showing off bulls and cows as a promotion. He certainly got attention because in a video you can see the bull dragging a handler across the field as players move out of the way. Once the field was cleared of the bull and any other obstructions, the team beat their opponents 24-12. It's MORNING EDITION.
