Cow Escapes the Slaughterhouse, Later Killed by Police

A cow ready to be slaughtered managed to escape by jumping a 6-foot fence. After a lengthy pursuit by the police through the city of Pocatello, ID, the police ended up shooting and killing the cow because they said she posed a “safety risk”.

Humans exploit billions of very gentle animals who value their lives as much as we do ours. We exploit these animals --who are not predators (such as cows, pigs, chickens, etc.)-- because we know they cannot retaliate and harm us. How easy it seems to confine them, breed them, mutilate them, torture them and kill them! This indeed is one of the darkest sides of humanity.
