A cow determined not to be on a dinner plate either jumped or bailed out of a truck headed to the slaughterhouse on Thursday in Paterson, New Jersey. Brianna, the cow, jumped from the second level of the truck, approximately eight feet from the ground, onto Route 80 before she was rescued by a sanctuary.
Brianna’s bravery saved her life, and the lucky bovine will now live out her life safely at the Skylands Animal Sanctuary Rescue. The founder of the rescue, Mike Stura, was able to place a lasso around her neck and eventually was ab;e to get her cornered as she wandered along the busy highway. This was the first cow Stura has ever rescued that escaped from a slaughter truck.
No one knows how she managed to fall from the second level of the truck, but on inspection, the truck door was missing. Brianna, however was the only cow that bailed out.
Although Brianna has a few minor injuries, the organization’s veterinarian stated she was in good health. She will be quarantined to make sure she isn’t sick.
Check out her video… what a lucky girl!
Enjoy your life Brianna. You are safe.
