A 4-month old calf escaped a slaughterhouse and roamed the streets of Brooklyn. Now she'll live out her days at a sanctuary.

Skylands Animal Sanctuary And Rescue in New Jersey announced on Wednesday that the runaway cow will officially be relocated to its facility.
A runaway cow that roamed the streets of Brooklyn this week will get a second chance at life, after a slaughterhouse agreed to let the calf live out her days at an animal sanctuary in nearby New Jersey.


 The four-month-old calf was wrangled in by passersby after she was seen wandering around the streets of South Brooklyn Tuesday, ABC 7 reported. The calf escaped a vehicle just outside a slaughterhouse nearby, according to the outlet.


Skylands Animal Sanctuary And Rescue announced on Wednesday that the loose cow will officially be relocated to its facility.

"THIS JUST IN. THE OWNERS HAVE AGREED TO LET HER COME AND LIVE OUT HER LIFE ON THE SANCTUARY," Skylands wrote in a Facebook post.

The sanctuary — which has saved many animals from slaughterhouses in the past, including a small herd of sheep just last month — solicited help from its followers to pressure Saba Live Poultry in Brooklyn to allow the calf to live at Skylands.

"We immediately offered the calf a lifelong home, but these people have easily been the least receptive to letting an animal live that I've ever dealt with," Skylands wrote in an earlier Facebook post. "Maybe the news coverage and some public sentiment will help them see this poor kid as an individual."

Mike Stura, who runs Skylands, told ABC 7 that while the calf was initially sent back to the slaughterhouse after she was captured in the street, public support for her release led the slaughterhouse owners to let her go.

"Even slaughterhouse workers over the years that have given me animals, much bigger animals than this one, and have taken a much bigger financial hit and have said to me that they're happy the animal came with me," Stura said. "They are happy to see one live. You know, even the people in the slaughterhouses."

Now, the four-month old calf will live out her days among fellow rescued animals and livestock.
