While I haven’t yet seen the clip, a reader sent in a tip saying that on ABC’s The View this morning, Barbara Walters indicated that she’s one step closer to going meatless.

“This morning on the View Barbara Walters brought up the topic of the Cow Molly that had escaped a slaughterhouse in NY yesterday. She said that was the reason she is more and more leaning towards vegetarianism. She also stated that she is scheduled to go to a White House dinner and she plans on bringing her own veggie burgers.”

Go Barbara! With regards to Molly the Cow, here’s a bit of backstory from the AP:

New York police said the all-black cow got out from Musa Hala, Inc. about 1 p.m. Wednesday, a slaughterhouse where animals are butchered according to religious restrictions. She wandered nearly a mile before she was corralled and captured by Emergency Services Unit officers. She was darted and delivered to the city’s Animal Care and Control, where she was nicknamed Molly.

Apparently, officials are trying to see if Molly can be transferred to a Farm Sanctuary — that is, unless someone comes forward to claim her and reinstate the death sentence. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for a happy ending here.
