According to the New York Daily News, the cow escaped from a nearby slaughterhouse and was running wild in Prospect Park for a number of hours. The NYPD’s Emergency Services Unit traveled to the scene near Coney Island and Caton Avenues after receiving calls about the escaped cow beginning at around 11 a.m. local time. Animal Care Centers from the city have been called in to try and sedate the animal, but it seems anytime officers get close, the cow runs away.
The baby cow is believed to have run away from a slaughterhouse located on Fourth Ave. and 16th St. and ran two miles to the park.
