The raging bull that ran wild through the streets of Queens after escaping a slaughterhouse Tuesday has died, cops said.
The bull was shot with at least five tranquilizer darts by police before it likely died of stress, police and witnesses said.

The animal will be transported to a crematorium, where it will be disposed of, according to police.
The bull bolted through a housing project before it was cornered in a neighbor’s back yard, police sources said.
Police shot the raging bull with a tranquilizer to calm him and also injected the animal with a syringe of xylazine, a drug used for sedation, which knocked the bull out for at least an hour, sources said.
