YOUNG BACK ANGUS COW ESCAPES FROM BROOKLYN SLAUGHTERHOUSE AND GOES ON A TEAR
In what could only have been a surreal scene, a young black angus cow escaped from a truck hauling him from a farm in Pennsylvania to Saba Live Poultry in Canarsie, Brooklyn. And yes, that destination would have been the final destination for the blank angus cow. It’s a slaughterhouse! You have to imagine if something told the cow he needed to make good on his escape. He certainly tried, as you can see from the picture above. For several long, amazing minutes, he tore thru the local neighborhood, with slaughterhouse employees and staff from a nearby pizza place trying to catch him.

AFTER CAPTURE, AN ANIMAL SANCTUARY OWNER SECURED “STEWIE” THE BNACK ANGUS COW’S RELEASE
But they did finally manage to corral the flighty critter and brought him to what otherwise would have been his final destination. The steaks were high for the young black angus, that’s for sure. But Mike Stura, the owner of Skylands animal sanctuary and animal rights advocate, saw the drama happening online and “made some calls.” He makes a regular habit of rescuing “renegade livestock,” and the young black angus fit the bill. He spent three hours on a tense call with the farm owner in Pennsylvania and the manager of the slaughterhouse. Somehow, he clinched the deal but won’t comment on how he convinced them to release the cow into his hands.

“STEWIE” WILL LIVE ON AT SKYLANDS, WHERE PEOPLE CAN VISIT HIM AND OVER 400 OTHER ANIMAL RESCUES
But Stura, a vegan, said he didn’t pay any money to secure the animal’s release from certain carved up death. He explained, “Paying money would be counterproductive to my goal. We don’t want there to be any slaughterhouses, so how can we be animal advocates and pay them at the same time?” Stura has since named the young black angus cow Stewie, though he’ll never make it into anyone’s stew pot now. Stewie will live out the remainder of his many days at Skylands, a New Jersey animal rescue where over 400 animals live on 232 acres of pasture. You can even visit him there for a day trip or stay at the farm’s B&B.
And no, the B&B doesn’t serve bacon or steak and eggs in the morning.
