PINCONNING TOWNSHIP, Mich. - Employees at a Michigan meat processing plant were forced to chase down a cow that tried to escape.
The cow got loose on Friday because the trailer it was in wasn't close enough to the Bay County processing facility's gate when the trailer was opened.
The wily bovine took off, cutting through a few neighbors' lawns before crossing a highway.
Neighbor Steve Brock tells The Bay City Times the cow was on the lam for about 10 minutes before Scott's Meat Processing employees were able to corral it and put it down.
Brock says the employees "had to put it down before it got (back) on the road."
The 690-pound cow was sent for processing.
Butcher James Smith says cow escapes happen about once a year.
