Cow escapes from slaughterhouse, leads police on chase

Every time the cops thought they had him the bull proved to be an excellent fugitive and took off again

The bull that led police on a multi-hour chase through Queens after escaping from a local slaughterhouse died Tuesday, NBC New York reports.

Police first received a call about the bull at 10:20 a.m., an NYPD spokesperson said.

Police believe the animal escaped from one of the slaughterhouses along Archer Ave. near York College, reported the New York Daily News. They had reportedly sedated the animal with darts, and were trying to get the slaughterhouse workers to come retrieve it. Officers tried to cut him off with their vehicles, but he repeatedly dodged their attempts. It was finally corralled and tranquilized in the backyard of a home at 115-43 158th St. around 12:30 p.m., police said.

A police spokesman could not immediately comment on what would happen to the cow after it was captured. Both were saved by animal activists.

The station reported that the bull legs were tied together to stop it from mounting another escape. In April, another named Frank was spared after Jon Stewart intervened.
