Ox dashed through hallways of South American hospital

Ox Runs Loose in Brazilian Hospital

It's an unusual incident, to say the least. An ox made its way inside a South American hospital and was caught on camera running down one of the hallways.

According to the date on the surveillance footage, the incident took place a little more than a month ago. The question people are still asking is the obvious one ... how did the ox end up in the hospital?

9 News reports the hospital is in a rural part of Rio, which is also near an area where a lot of oxen roam. On top of that, the hospital doesn't have fencing to keep the animals away from the building.

That lack of fencing is cited as a major reason the animal wandered inside the building. The animal knocked over a few doors.

Fox News reports police were able to capture the ox and take it out of the building. Luckily, nobody was hurt.

Well, since it "appears" that no one has says this in recent comments.

Must've been an OXymoron on the loose! I can picture it - automatic doors usually (slide) open at a hospital. This sly fOX must've gone for it. Must've had an OXytocin (hormone) rush in more ways than one!

I figured the 2 that ran down the hall on the video first were the oxen

As usual the most damage done to the health care system is by patients without insurance who show up demanding treatment
