Escape of cattle from St. Louis slaughterhouse spurs roundup

The six heifers slipped out of the Star Packing Company on Thursday afternoon and took to north St. Louis streets, trotting through neighborhoods and interrupting traffic.

One of the cattle was captured at 14th and Destrehan Street; two others were at Little Sisters of the Poor in a fenced-in area; and three were in another area near 20th Street and Bremen Avenue. Officers can be seen holding tranquilizer rifles. A total of six cattle got loose, however they were eventually all located, unfortunately to be taken back to the facility they were trying to escape.

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

The "freedom dash" didn't just catch Brewer's eye, but that of the New York-based Farm Sanctuary which has offered to take in the runaways. "They're just running for their life", said the director, Susie Coston.
