Nothing ‘adorable’ about a cow trying to escape last ride to slaughterhouse

A viral video has been making its rounds through social media after a motorist filmed a cow poking her head out of a cattle truck while travelling down a busy Melbourne highway on Wednesday. Viewers commented the cow looked “adorable” and “hilarious.” Where else could a truck full of cattle be heading besides the nearest slaughterhouse?

“Hamilton Barrow Willis That’s not “an adorable sight” because that panicked cow was probably being shipped to slaughter along with dozens of her fellow cattle. That was her desperate attempt to escape being killed for her flesh and hide.”

According to Channel9News, the video which was uploaded to Facebook and a person could be heard saying:

“What the hell is that?,” one person asked.

“It’s a cow,” someone else says. “It’s going to hit the top of the thing.”

The onlookers managed to get the driver’s attention to tell him one of the cows had been trying to escape. The cow did safely pass under the sign and was not harmed. Whereas many comments on Facebook referred to the cow’s attempted last chance at freedom as cute and hilarious, perhaps too many people still believe in

” Old MACDONALD had a farm
E-I-E-I-O
And on his farm he had a cow
E-I-E-I-O
With a moo moo here
And a moo moo there
Here a moo, there a moo
Everywhere a moo moo
Old MacDonald had a farm
E-I-E-I-O,”

where all the cows lived happily ever after gracefully offering their milk to the farmers who loved and cared for them. Sadly, a slaughterhouse was likely this frightened cow’s last stop.

    I haven’t been able to force myself to go completely vegan but I have cut WAY back on meat, dairy, etc. and there are some days that I do not eat any meat.

    Nothing funny about it. That cow is terrified and trying to get to safety. Your insistence on eating beef made this situation. Stop eating beef and this won’t happen. Check out what they go through to give you milk.

    Not funny! Either that trailer is so over packed that poor cow was forced up there or it is trying to escape. Cows can’t climb, I believe it was forced through over crowding up there. Humans are the worst monsters on earth. Animals being transported are stuffed into trailers becoming injured by others and humans could care less. STOP eating flesh! That’s the only cure to crap like this…

    I agree. This is so wrong and so evil how can humanity continue the slaughter we’ll find out when we are all swept with diseases for killing them!
