On Tuesday, this cow made a break for it from a slaughterhouse in Brooklyn’s Canarsie neighborhood and ran amok across the neighborhood.
Several people were seen on video shared online following the runaway black calf across the neighborhood. One man in an apron could be seen attempting to stop the calf by pulling on the cow’s tail.
“It was basically going down Rockaway Parkway all the while being chased by people from the butcher who was unable to nail her down,” witness Vinny Fontana told Gothamist.
According to two videos uploaded online by News 12 reporter Mary-Lyn Buckley, a cow surged past the man who was dragging its tail and jacked another man out of his shoes as it turned down Avenue L at East 96th Street.
As the animal fled down the street, the man could be seen following after it.
According to Gothamist, a pizza business employee in the area resorted to brandishing his apron like a matador in an attempt to scare away the animal.
According to Fontana, proprietor of the nearby Original Pizza, workers were able to capture the cow in the area of Avenue M and East 95th Street.
A lasso-wielding guy was among the many who helped herd the cow when she entered the business center, according to Fontana.
According to News 12, the 4-month-old calf will be going to a farm in Pennsylvania rather than the slaughterhouse.
New York City police claimed they knew nothing about the missing cow.
An escaped calf isn’t unprecedented in Brooklyn.
This calf escaped from a Park Slope slaughterhouse in 2017 and was later apprehended and relocated to a New Jersey animal sanctuary.
