New York City’s Wall Street bull has been freed from his corral.
The New York Post reports (http://bit.ly/1pysY3V ) that police removed the barricades surrounding the Charging Bull sculpture on Tuesday.
The bull had been penned in since September 2011, when police feared the sculpture would be targeted by Occupy Wall Street protesters.
The New York Police Department says security around the bull will be assessed on a day-to-day basis.
