On June 13, a Baltimore officer fired multiple times into the steer that had escaped the West Baltimore slaughterhouse after police said the animal was a threat to public safety. Efforts to corral the steer with patrol cars and trap it in a parking garage had failed. The incident is being reviewed by the department's Force Investigation Team.

Animal control officers, who are better trained to deal with animals, are more likely to carry them, Johnson said. Police are often called when animals pose an immediate public danger, and a tranquilizer gun might not be the best option because the drugs take time to take effect.

Kowalczyk said police are "evaluating law enforcement agencies across the nation to see what best practices are" before deciding whether to begin using any kind of tranquilizer gun again.
