CINCINNATI (AP) - Authorities say a cow got a short reprieve from a Cincinnati slaughterhouse before it was fatally shot.

It happened at about 11 a.m. Wednesday when the cow escaped from Tri State Beef Company. The cow tromped through traffic before a slaughterhouse worker ended up catching up with the animal.

The worker shot it twice with a rifle after the cow charged at him.

No one was injured and police say they aren’t investigating the incident.
