A Brooklyn pizzeria shared surveillance video of a cow making a run for it in the streets from a slaughterhouse.
It happened Tuesday around 1:40 p.m., witnesses told FOX 5 New York.
Several videos strung together show people frantically chasing the cow, some with lassos, and one man in an apron even attempting to grab the bovine's tail.
"It was just running down Rockaway Parkway all the while being chased by people from the slaughterhouse who were unable to nail her down," Vinny Fontana, owner of Original Pizza, told Gothamist. "When she came into the business district, everyone pitched in together to herd this cow."

The cow was eventually captured near Avenue M and East 95th Street after being chased in Canarsie.
An employee at the slaughterhouse on Rockaway Avenue told NBC New York that the calf "slipped a truck and ran for about a mile."
The escape attempt worked, as the 4-month-old calf will reportedly live out its days at a New Jersey sanctuary, according to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
"The facility surrendered her to Skylands Animal Sanctuary & Rescue, where she will have the opportunity to graze on open pastures, roam freely, and do whatever else she likes," a PETA press release reads.

The agreement with Saba Live Poultry slaughterhouse apparently did not come easily.
"We immediately offered the calf a lifelong home, but these people have easily been the least receptive to letting an animal live that I’ve ever dealt with," Mike Stura posted on the Skylands Animal Sanctuary social media. "Maybe the news coverage and some public sentiment will help them see this poor kid as an individual."

Back in 2021, a 1,500-pound bull broke through a fence just before slaughter in Manorville and managed to evade authorities for two months before it was finally caught, according to FOX 5. Skylands Animal Sanctuary ended up capturing him and dubbed him Barnie the Bull.
A calf escaped from a slaughterhouse in Park Slop before it was captured by authorities and taken to an animal sanctuary in New Jersey in 2017, the New York Post reports.
