Steer that ran from slaughterhouse getting settled
Question of the Day
MANCHESTER, Mich. (AP) - A steer that made a break for it while on the way to slaughter in North Dakota is getting settled at a Michigan farm animal sanctuary after being spared from the butcher knife.
The 1,800-pound steer kicked out a gate at a meat processing plant in Casselton on March 6 and wandered around town for a while, prompting a school and a child care center to keep children inside. No one was hurt and no property was damaged.
SASHA Farm in Manchester, about 50 miles southwest of Detroit, agreed to get the steer, which had been called Waldo but now is known as Fargo.
Sanctuary co-owner and co-founder Dorothy Davies tells The Ann Arbor News (http://bit.ly/PX9rzG ) the steer now is “part of the herd and part of the family.”
