Handlers were finally able to control the bull after it slowed down.
No injuries were reported, according to British media.
Before kick-off, the Catalans issued a statement saying three bulls and two cows would take a walk around the pitch while the players warmed up as part of a program honoring local cattle.
The event was a partnership with a local meat processing plant. The president of the Catalans, Bernard Guasch, is the owner of the plant.
