Posted on 07/18/2012 2:44:13 PM PDT by nickcarraway
A cow has escaped a slaughterhouse in the Alps and has been on the run since last week. Brigitte Bardot's animal welfare foundation says it wants to give the renegade cow a home.
Ten days after her escape, the renegade cow has yet to be found. On July 2nd, the cow was being herded into a slaughterhouse in Bonneville, in the Alps, when it bolted at deaths door and fled staff.
French police have unsuccessfully combed the area around the slaughterhouse to find her.
On the internet, many people have rallied in support of the cow in recent days, calling for her life to be spared, daily Le Parisien reports.
"I think this cow is a symbol. She shows that animals have emotions, a conscience. She fled because she knew she was going to die. Today we should fight for her, to save her," web-user Stéphanie writes online.
"There would be no point in killing her anyway. Her meat can no longer be sold because she has escaped the traditional farming processes," adds Sébastien, according to Le Parisien.
The Brigitte Bardot Foundation, which campaigns for animal rights, has responded to these calls and says it would like to take care of the renegade cow. It says it has a field in Normandy that could welcome the cow.
No doubt this cow’s cause will also be taken up by PETA. But it sounds more like a commercial for Chik Fil-A to me. ;-)
Renegade cows should stick together!
It had better MOOOOve along...
I am pretty much supporting renegades of all stripes against commie oppressive governments. Go Cows!
And seriously, if the cow can’t be used for food anymore, why the hell not if someone wants to take care of it with their own agency funds?
I wish more people exhibited this kind of behavior against their frickin big brother, where’s your papers, we will do this to you and you will like it, TSA rapist molesters, government overlords.
Have they checked the local theaters? Cows love to go to the moooovies.
A formally most beautiful, but now skanky looking, Hollyweird star.
You beat me to it.
Pardon the obvious Commie slant, but I’ve think I found the cow in question.
WOW! That could put an eye out.
Oh, and it’s worth adding. She love animals but hates the Islamic takeover of France and has been fined multiple time by the Vrai Politique de la France for saying naughty things about Muslims. Some things are more important than others.
Sounds like prime fodder for a Dave Barry column.
I’m with Bardot. I’ve got to respect a cow that bucks the herd mentality.
I admire Bridgitte. She established an animal care facility to care for and prevent cruelty to animals- investing millions of her own funds into it.
She also has gone to jail and had been fined numerous times for speaking out against Islam in France.
