Cow escapes slaughterhouse for a while

CINCINNATI, March 22 (UPI) -- A cow escaped a Cincinnati slaughterhouse Tuesday, wandering through a residential neighborhood for more than 2 hours before being caught.

The cow eluded police, but eventually the Society for the Prevention for the Cruelty to Animals disabled the cow with two tranquilizer darts after it wandered behind Deaconess Hospital in University Heights, reported WLWT-TV in Cincinnati.

The cow had meandered about 1 mile after it escaped the slaughterhouse because of a broken lock on a pen.

Three years ago, another cow jumped a 6-foot high slaughterhouse fence and became a national celebrity after eluding captors for 11 days.

The cow, named Cinci Freedom, was spared the slaughterhouse ax after artist Peter Max offered to adopt the cow. He now keeps Cinci Freedom at his upstate New York farm.
