SHELBY COUNTY, TN (WMC) - What's lurking around the corner this Halloween? It may be a bull. Shelby Forest residents are on the lookout for a bull that is reportedly on the loose.

According to neighbors, the bull belongs to R&B icon Al Green. It is the second Halloween that neighbors are spooked.

The thought of a bull on the loose is worst than any ghost for people in Shelby Forest.

"Terrifying because I have small children," said a neighbor who asked to remain anonymous. "Once they feel threatened, they are going to protest it's turf and they could kill you."

Neighbors near River Bluff Road say they are anything but happy about what seems to be deja vu.

On Halloween 2011, a herd of Al Green's bulls roamed free through Shelby Forest. It took days to corral the livestock.

The neighbor says that this time around, a dog chased the bull outside of the musical fence.

With just a bucket of greens sitting outside of Al Green's property to lure the bull back, many people doubt it will be caught.

"A bull could kill you, it would see us as a threat," said the neighbor. "So, I'm afraid for my children's safety and my own."

Deputies drove through the area and were not able to find the bull.

WMC Action News 5's Sasha Jones reached out to Al Green through his current record label, but that call has not yet been returned.
