Dozens Of Cow escapes slaughterhouse
Dozens of cows escaped a slaughterhouse in Southern California and roamed free for over an hour on Tuesday, injuring four people, CBS Los Angeles reported. One of the animals was fatally shot by deputies after authorities said it charged at a family.
At least 40 cow escapes slaughterhouse through a gate that had been accidentally left open at Manning Beef, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said. A viral video showed the cows stampeding through a residential neighborhood in Pico Rivera and running through a yard.
Another clip showed how the large group slowed down traffic as they ran along in the middle of the street.
The cows eventually settled into a closed street and were surrounded by sheriff’s deputies. They were unsuccessful in trying to round up the cows, prompting the farm animals to scatter farther.
