Today I saw this lovely story and I just had to share! On June 18, 2011 a young cow named Kayli was about to be slaughtered just outside Philadelphia. She made a break for it and escaped but was ultimately caught by the police and returned, though not before the story got out. Local activists pushed for her release and, after a lot of work and cajoling on their part, she received a "pardon" from the governor. She was brought to The Woodstock Animal Sanctuary in New York to live out her days in peace. :)
Here is the video of her release three days ago. Look how happy she is! And I love the way the other cows get excited. Enjoy!
