Cows escape slaughterhouse in St. Louis, leading police on wild chase and now, a plea for mercy

Cows on the lam from an abattoir had police in hot pursuit in St. Louis today. The great escape was documented live by media outlets, onlookers and city police.


Of course, there was live television coverage. And, Twitter went wild.

Some images were just too precious.

And a parody account. Because. Of course.

But all the cattle were wrangled.

But clemency was offered.

Farm Sanctuary, which says its counterproductive to pay for the release of the cattle, wants the public to contact the slaughterhouse to urge it to hand over the animals to a safe haven.
