The brave cow who managed to escape from the perils of a Paterson, New Jersey slaughterhouse has found sanctuary and received a heartwarming bovine fairytale thanks to an upstate New York man.
Animal rights advocate Mike Stura rescued the 750-pound cow and guided it to a Woodstock, New York animal sanctuary where as Stura put, "He'll never end up on someone's plate, that's for sure."
A veterinarian treated the dehydrated cow and found it had been struck by a vehicle, causing the animal to lose some blood and incur an infection.
The sanctuary specifically works to find homes for farm animals including cows, pigs, sheep, and more.
On Tuesday, Paterson's chief animal control officer confirmed the cow's safety and reassured the owner of the slaughterhouse would not claim her again.
