Runaway Cow to be Spared

rwtf.JPG


The 500-pound cow that led New York City police on a mile-long chase after bolting from a Queens slaughterhouse is now living large at a Long Island farm sanctuary. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says they transported the young cow, nicknamed 'Molly,' to a Calverton sanctuary called the Farrm on Thursday afternoon. Now she shares a small grassy pasture with a steer named Wexler.

Molly escaped her fate on Wednesday afternoon when she was being unloaded at the Musa Halal slaughterhouse on Beaver Road in Jamaica, Queens. She broke through a fence that is put up as a passageway between the truck and the cow pens.

She then dashed to freedom, with some of the slaughterhouse's employees in pursuit, and went about a mile through urban streets until she was captured by police officers in a fenced area between two houses. She spent the night at an Animal Care and Control shelter in Brooklyn.

Now, if all the other cows ... (Below threshold)

Now, if all the other cows had had the same idea, they might be "spared" too, and given a cute name.
