Cow escapes NJ slaughterhouse, will be spared

Posted:

PATERSON, N.J. (WKOW) – A cow that fled from a New Jersey slaughterhouse will be spared and taken to a farm.

Just after 8 p.m. on Tuesday, the black-and-white bovine ran through the streets of Paterson. Police tried to corral the 750-pound cow with their cars, but it managed to break loose.

After it got trapped between a fire hydrant and a truck, animal control officer John De Cando tranquilized the cow. De Cando says the slaughterhouse owner will take the animal to a farm. No one was injured while tracking down the cow.
