Cattle make Daring Escape in New Jersey

October 18, 2013
 
 

Two cattle headed to a New Jersey slaughterhouse this week had other plans.

They busted out of a trailer in Montvale Tuesday and caused chaos in northern New Jersey for a while before they were captured. Now, they'll spend the rest of their days on a Bergen County farm.

Animal control officials tell The Star-Ledger that a Montvale resident had purchased the cattle and they were to be taken to Paterson Wednesday to be slaughtered. But they escaped and created traffic nightmares in the area as police tried to corral them.

The female brown cow was cornered quickly, but the bull escaped capture until Wednesday when he was caught near the Garden State Parkway.
