ENGLEWOOD, OH (CNN/WHIO) – A steer headed for the slaughterhouse managed to get free Thursday in Ohio.
The animal, known as “Mister Moo,” noticed the door on his trailer was partially open, so he didn’t waste any time. He must have known where his owners were taking him.
“The cow pushed the door open and jumped out,” said Suzanne Luthe, the cow’s owner.
“The interstate was a wreck. Finally got traffic to stop and we got the cow off.”
Luthe says the steer had been scheduled to be taken to a slaughterhouse last month by her son. But that same morning, he and two other teens were killed in a car crash.
Luthe says she’s sure all three of them are “in heaven… laughing their heads off.”
