A sheriff's deputy in Dale County, Ala., found himself face to face with an angry bull on a call in late July.
Dale County encompasses the town of Ozark and is slightly northwest of Dothan.
In the incident, video of which has only recently been released, the deputy drives his SUV toward a loose bull in an attempt to isolate the animal.
Undeterred, the bull rams into the vehicle, at one point lifting the entire car up off its wheels and into the air. The bull keeps his head to the car's hood and attempts to keep pushing it back on the road until the video ends.

Deputy Scott Spurlock told WSFA he let the bull hit his vehicle to minimize damage to any other property. Sheriff Wally Olson told the stationthe bull kept escaping his enclosure, probably to get at some neighboring cows.
Olson told News 18 the caller "coudn't go outside because she was afraid of (the bull)."
The bull was eventually returned, but the owner decided to have him put down, WFSA reported.
