Happy Ending: Fugitive Cow Transferred To Animal Sanctuary

The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

mollycowA fugitive cow that escaped a New York City slaughterhouse and dodged police and cars for a good hour throughout Queens is now living the good life. Nicknamed Molly, the escape-artist somehow managed to hoof her way out of death’s jaws and into a farm sanctuary on Long Island. As we wrote yesterday, Molly’s story has also inspired host Barbara Walters to inch ever-closer to a vegetarian diet. From the article,

Molly the cow, once destined for a Queens slaughterhouse, is living the good life on a farm in bucolic Suffolk County. “She bolted out of the trailer when they got here,” said Rex Farr, who runs The Farrm, a 60-acre organic farm in Calverton, with his wife, Connie. “She’s gone from being seconds away from becoming hamburger to living on an organic farm,” Farr said. The only thing he will use from the cow is something she presumably will no longer need. “I’ll use her fertilizer,” he said.

We’re happy for Molly — but I wonder how many more cows might be save if people really thought about where their food comes from. Folks probably would have gone apeshit if Molly had been sent back to the slaughterhouse, but how about all the other “unnamed” cows that didn’t manage to escape. What care do we have for them?
