Cow escapes slaughterhouse and swims to freedom...

by Banana Crumble | Mar 08, 2018

A cow has been living alone on an island, attacking anyone who comes near. This was after staging a miraculous escape whilst on a journey to a slaughterhouse. Instead she smashed through a metal fence, broke the arm of the man trying to catch her, and made a run for the nearby Lake Nysa, Poland. When she got to the lake she swam to an island in the middle.

The cow’s owner, Mr. Lukasz, spent a week trying to get her to come back before finally giving up.

Lukasz considered having the cow put down, but  a local MP stepped in. Pawel Kukiz, a politician in the town of Nysa, offered to pay for the “hero cow” to be saved from death.

“She escaped heroically and infiltrated the island in the middle of the lake, where it remains today,” Kukiz wrote on Facebook. “She did not succumb to firefighters who wanted to transport her by boat and she was still on the battlefield.”

“I am not a vegetarian, but fortitude and the will to fight for this cow’s life is invaluable. Therefore, I decided to do everything to cause the cow to be delivered to a safe place and in the second stage, as a reward for her attitude, give her a guarantee of a long-term retirement and natural death.”
