Cow gets new home after escape from slaughterhouse

Cow gets new home after escape from slaughterhouse
NEW YORK � 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.

ASCPA assistant director Joseph Pentangelo says the all-black cow seemed to be enjoying her new freedom, adding "Her future's a lot brighter now than it was 48 hours ago."

The spirited cow dodged cars, cops and a few irate butchers as she fled a mile through an urban area of Queens on Wednesday. Members of the NYPD's elite Emergency Services Unit eventually captured the cow.

I saw this on the news. Maybe we need to rethink how we look at these animals. This isn't the first time a cow escaped a slaughterhouse. By the way, Molly is less than a year old and completely traumatized.   

On a lighter note, I hope Molly becomes the spokescow for animal rights and gets her own talk show.

After seeing the 14 photos on the NY Post site, I need to look at my eating habits a little more carefully. I used to be a vegetarian, but I went back to putting meatballs in my spaghetti a long time ago. I was going to join in the puns and say "no bull" or "I think we've milked this story enough" but this little cow, only a year old, has found a friend and a new life on a farm. It's very touching.
