Translation of: HERCULES CAPTURES THE CRETAN BULL AND CARRIES HIM LIVING TO EURYSTHEUS

On pg. 202 of D'Ooge's book

HERCULES CAPTURES THE CRETAN BULL AND CARRIES HIM LIVING TO EURYSTHEUS
Then, Eurystheus ordered Hercules to bring a certain, very ferocious bull alive from the island of Crete. Therefore, he boarded a ship-for the wind was suitable-and immediately set sail. After he sailed for three days, he approached the island safe and sound. Then, after everything was prepared, he hurried to that region which the bull was vexing. Soon, he saw the bull, and without any fear, he seized its horns. Then, with great labor, he dragged the monster to the ship and left from the island this game.
