Now that’s a happy cow.

A cow that escaped a Paterson, New Jersey slaughterhouse Tuesday night has found refuge at  Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary in upstate New York. After police and animal control captured the bovine, veterinarians examined him, finding him a bit battered and dehydrated, but none the worse for the wear.

The owner of the slaughterhouse promised to release the cow and animal rights advocate Mike Stura offered to escort him to his new home. “Two of the people at the slaughterhouse helped me,” Stura said. “He didn’t seem to like them that much. He tried to kick them. But he was nice to me.”

Stura, who has “Show Mercy To Animals,” tattooed on his arms, is certain the cow has a happy and purposeful life ahead of him. “He’ll never wind up on someone’s plate, that’s for sure,” he said. “He’ll be used to teach people. People will come and meet him on the weekends.”
