LOS ANGELES: A cow that remained missing after escaping from a slaughterhouse in the company of about forty of its congeners was found but will be pardoned after the intervention of a celebrity, the songwriter Diane Warren, who has pleaded his case.
The herd of cows sparked a stir as they fled the slaughterhouse where they were to end their day
The fleeing cattle had roamed the small streets of Pico Rivera, sometimes lingering on the lawns of houses, before being caught by men of the sheriff of Los Angeles aided by police on horseback.
But one of them continued to roam and was not located until later by passer-by, grazing in a field a few kilometers from the slaughterhouse.
Officials announcedthat the cow will be saved, thanks to Diane Warren, a Californian songwriter with multiple international hits, film scores, a Grammy Award, an Emmy Award and two Golden Globes.
The artist has indeed come forward to “facilitate the release” of the animal “in collaboration with local shelters”.
The town of Pico Rivera is itself in discussions with the owners of the slaughterhouse to study the possibility of sending all the escaped cows to shelters, the official said.
