New Jersey Slaughterhouse Ticketed After Cow Escaped

Animal control officers have ticketed a Trenton, N.J. slaughterhouse for creating a public nuisance after a cow escaped.

The bovine fled Trenton Halal Packing Company during unloading on Friday and made its way to Interstate 295 after it was shot with a tranquilizer dart. It died shortly after.

Trenton Health Officer James Brownlee tells The Times of Trenton the case will be heard in municipal court.

The company's owner could not be reached for comment.
