Cow that survives slaughterhouse gives birth

WANTAGE TOWNSHIP, NJ (Sussex County) – A cow who escaped a cattle truck that was on its way to a slaughterhouse Thursday morning on Interstate 80 gave birth to a calf at an animal sanctuary Saturday afternoon.

The cow later named ‘Brianna’ is now a proud mother of a baby girl named ‘Winter.’ She was born on Saturday at 1:30 p.m., the Skylands Animal Sanctuary and Rescue said on its Facebook page Sunday.  

At around 2:40 a.m. on Thursday, ‘Brianna’ jumped out of the second floor of a transport truck on to Interstate 80 as it was traveling to a slaughterhouse. It took police several hours to capture the cow.
