Fire crews tackling a wildfire in California had an additional hazard to contend with — a charging bull.
Footage shared by the Ventura County Fire Department on Friday shows firefighters fleeing the animal.
“Oh my God,” one firefighter says in the clip filmed from inside a fire truck.
The crews had been clearing access to the Lake Fire that broke out near Lake Hughes in the Angeles National Forest on Wednesday, when the bull approached.
It “wasn’t clowning around,” said the department.
The bull, who firefighters named Ferdinand, later walked away.
No one was injured in the incident.

The blaze has now covered more than 17,000 acres, according to the National Forest Service. It is only 12% contained.
Evacuation orders have been issued to multiple communities in the area, which is 60 miles north of Los Angeles, as a heatwave continues to grip the state.
