Yvonne has been in the news since escaping from a Bavarian farm in May. Now, she finally has a home, and it won’t be the farm she managed to escape.

According to the Huffington Post, Yvonne was spotted by a farmer today when she jumped a fence to join fellow cows on the farm. It’s the end of months of hiding in the forests and being chased, once almost colliding with a police car. The tag on her ear confirmed that she was in fact the famous “runaway cow” and the farmer called her new home, Gut Aiderbichl animal sanctuary.

The sanctuary purchased Yvonne from her previous owners to ensure that when she was found, she would be brought to safety. She is being kept with calves on the farm until the Gut Aiderbichl sanctuary arrives to bring her home. The farm reported that she was grazing along with the calves, and “healthy and calm.”

It’s nice to hear that Yvonne will now live out her years in peace. If only all of the others would have the same fate.
