According to PIX11, a young cow evaded capture in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park early Tuesday after fleeing a nearby slaughterhouse.
After running through busy city streets for over two hours, the cow was cornered and captured in a park by police.
Social media posts show the scared cow dashing between cars and pedestrians.
Police told PIX11 that the cow would be brought to Brooklyn Animal Care and Control and then turned over to a sanctuary.
These heartbreaking stories are not uncommon. In fact, this is the fourth cow to escape a New York City slaughterhouse in just over two years. You may remember Freddy, a cow who made the news when he escaped in Queens. He was eventually caught and brought to an animal sanctuary where he lives peacefully.
