Cattle call: Heifers escape from St. Louis slaughterhouse

Workers wrangle cattle in St. Louis after slaughterhouse escape

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/2nCoShR ) the animals were picked up Monday from the slaughterhouse and taken to an area farm.

The bovine escaped from the Star Packing Co.

A heifer bursts through an iron fence Thursday at the Little Sisters of the Poor in St. Louis.

She said she and the leader of New Jersey-based animal rescue organization Skylands would to travel to St. Louis to get the cattle.

While all these calls for help exist, Star Packing owner Omar Hamdan told the newspaper they can have the cattle just like everyone else.




The cattle attracted groups of onlookers in each of the areas.

The Farm Sanctuary, located in Watkins Glen, New York., publicly offered to transport and house the six cows at their sanctuary. "They're just running for their life", said the director, Susie Coston.

'If anyone wants to buy them that's fine, ' Hamdan said Thursday. All six were captured and contained by 7:06 p.m. that night, according to the St. Louis Police Department.

That's prompted a vegetarian man from suburban St. Louis to launch an online fundraising push to buy the animals' freedom.
