Trains in Newark, N.J., were delayed when a real, live bull wandered onto the tracks. There's no clue where he came from, but he's now in an animal sanctuary, where he's known as Ricardo.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. This explanation might be hard to give your boss when you're late. Trains in Newark, N.J., were delayed when a bull, complete with longhorns, wandered onto the tracks. Nobody knows where he came from, although he's now in an animal sanctuary. If you don't buy that story, there's always the runaway Chihuahua stopping traffic on the Staten Island Expressway. Bean, the dog, is now safe, although drivers were delayed. It's MORNING EDITION.
