PATERSON, N.J. — A cow that escaped from a New Jersey slaughterhouse will be spared.
The black-and-white bovine was running through the streets of Paterson sometime after 8 p.m. Tuesday.
De Cando tranquilized the cow after it became trapped between a fire hydrant and a truck.
De Cando says the slaughterhouse owner has promised to take the animal to a farm.
No one was injured.
