Pregnant Cow Escapes From A Truck That Was Taking Her To The Slaughterhouse And Gives Birth To A Wonderful Calf

About a week ago, a truck was taking a cow to a Paterson slaughterhouse in New Jersey, United States. However, she was not an ordinary cow and her story broke the internet.

Around 2:45 a.m. on Thursday night, the now-famous cow called Brianna fell 8 feet out of the second level of a truck that was taking her to a dead-end. She wandered around the highway until authorities captured her after an hour-long chase. She was named in honor of a police officer Brian who alerted the sanctuary to the animal’s escape.

However, the story doesn’t end here.

Little did they know, she was nine months pregnant. Some may think that she did that in order to save her baby. As soon as she arrived at Skylands of Wantage sanctuary, she gave birth to her baby who was named “Winter”.

They both are safe and sound and now live in the sanctuary.

Earlier this week, the calf Winter took its first steps. This moment, just like her birth and arrival, were filmed and shared on Skylands social networks, where you can see the new mother and daughter.

I may not be vegan/vegetarian, but I definitely think that the way they treat animals in farms should still be safe and humane for them, even if they're going to end up killing them at some point - this includes giving the animals room to move, feeding them appropriately, and not killing pregnant animals. Plus, the meat, pelt, etc. will be a lot higher quality.

I think it's ethical using animals for food. But we have to give them a good and happy life and a fast and painfree death. That's the only logical thing to do... they sacrifice their lifes for us, we need to treat them with respect.

You can read many articles on this. For example, this one by the FAO: http://www.fao.org/docrep/003/x6909e/x6909e04.htm You are welcome to enjoy your burger, but do not deny where it comes from.
