A cow escaped an Australian slaughterhouse and ran wild through the streets of a Queensland city before being stopped by police.
Caboolture resident John Good captured video Wednesday of the cow running along a busy intersection after it escaped from the abattoir. "Police actually had to cordon off streets, because it was charging people and destroying fences," Good said.
The chase came to an end when police euthanized the cow.
"Eventually the cow was put down, because 2 [tranquilizer] darts didn't calm it enough," Good said.
