Cow breaks out of Slaughterhouse, runs for life, succeeds.

Am Mittwoch ist eine Kuh aus einem Schlachthof in Queens ausgebrochen. Verständlich, ich hätte da auch nur sehr wenig Lust drauf. Sie rannte die Straße runter, einige Schlachter und Polizisten hinter ihr her. Bevor sie eingefangen werden konnte, machte sie noch ein paar Sachen kaputt und hier die wirklich gute Nachricht: Die Kuh, mittlerweile auf den Namen Molly getauft, wird nicht an das Schlachthaus zurück übergeben, sondern darf auf einer Farm im Umland so lange leben, wie sie nicht gestorben ist.

Cops cornered the moo-moo in Kahn's yard, shooting it with a tranquilizer gun before lassoing it. A slaughterhouse butcher tried to help subdue her but nearly got gored by its stubby horns.

Stumbling and struggling not to go back to the slaughterhouse, the top sirloin rammed her head into a police horse trailer brought to the scene. At least a dozen cops teamed up to get the cow into the trailer, witnesses said. It was taken to the city Animal Care and Control facility in Brooklyn. "It was bugging," barber Paul Echols, 23, said of the rawhide escapee. "I was worried. I'm not used to seeing stuff like that."

The gallivanting hay-eater's Houdini attempt apparently paid off. City officials said the animal - who they named Molly - will be headed for greener pastures. "We will find it a home," said Richard Gentles of the city Animal Care and Control. "We're starting to reach out to farm sanctuaries."
