Another cow escapes slaughterhouse, runs loose in Queens: Report
After running around the CUNY York College's campus, the cow was caught by members of the slaughterhouse from which it escaped.
It happened again.
According to DNAinfo, a cow once again decided to run through the streets of Queens on Friday morning.
The news comes after Instagram users posted videos of the animal running loose along Liberty Avenue at CUNY’s York College campus in Jamaica.
A CUNY spokeswoman confirmed to DNAinfo that the cow had escaped from a nearby slaughterhouse and fled to the school — where many tried to recapture it at around 10:30 a.m.
Videos show the animal running as it is chased through the school grounds and police can be seen in the video watching the cow, while a man — with what looks like a lasso—tried to get near the animal.
The spokeswoman added that the slaughterhouse staff managed to catch the cow after about 20 minutes, according to DNAinfo.
This cow’s Friday morning adventure comes more than two months after another cow made a daring escape in the same neighborhood and was spotted running around streets near Jamaica Avenue and Merrick Boulevard.
That cow — which was later named Freddie—gained so much attention after its escape that people started a petition for it to be saved after news broke that it was still scheduled to be killed.
Freddie was rescued by Skylands Animal Sanctuary and Rescue in Wantage, New Jersey and was taken to a vet to be checked.
It was not immediately clear which slaughterhouse Friday’s cow came from or what the fate of the animal will be.
