You expect to see cows on farms somewhere else in American, not in a NYC street. You can hear while watching the video that New Yorkers were very surprised to see this cow going for its life in a Queens street. And ‘going for its life’ is exactly the right phrase to use because this cow made a break from a slaughterhouse in Jamaica Queens.
Slaughtering cows so we can all get our meat is a matter of fact part of NYC life but most people wouldn’t even notice it was happening unless they live close to one of those slaughterhouses. So one of the cows due to breathe his last making a sudden break for freedom and running around on the street was very out of the ordinary.
Of course his brave dash away from the slaughterhouse bought this cow instant social media fame and in a trice the kind folks at Skylands Animal Sanctuary and Rescue in New Jersey offered him a home.
Now safe with them and the threat of imminent death now in the past he is slated to spend his days with other cows who are also no longer worried about becoming a Sunday roast. Good on you cow, we’re glad you escaped and now have a better future.
