Suffolk County police officers found themselves involved with a Long Island version of Spain’s “running of the bulls” early Saturday in Yaphank.

According to police, Seventh Precinct officers responded to a call shortly after 7 a.m. about two bulls on the loose on Yaphank Middle Island Road at Rustic Road.

Two officers and another man “guided the bulls” to the rear of a property on Yaphank Middle Island Road,” Assistant Police Commissioner Justin Meyers said in an emailed statement.

Meyers said the bulls escaped from a farm on Yaphank Middle Island Road and that the owner of the bulls would be contacted to retrieve them.
