NEW YORK, May 7 (UPI) -- Animal control officials in New York said a cow that escaped from a slaughterhouse and led police on a 10-block chase will not be returned for slaughter.

Police said Molly, a cow believed to be less than a year old, escaped from the Musa Hala Inc. slaughterhouse at about 1 p.m. Wednesday and ran through the streets, the New York Post reported Thursday.

Nesha Kahn, 39, said the cow was in her yard when police finally cornered the animal.

"I think the cow was traumatized. I asked the officer and they said they chased him for about 10 blocks," she said.

The cow was tranquilized and taken to the Center for Animal Care and Control, where officials said they hoped to find the bovine a permanent home at an animal sanctuary.
