Update: Slaughterhouse Escapee Arrives at Permanent Sanctuary

Update: Slaughterhouse Escapee Arrives at Permanent Sanctuary


Kayli, the white cow who romped through the streets of Upper Darby, Pennsylvania last month attempting to escape from the Madina slaughterhouse is now safe and sound in Woodstock, New York.

Arriving Monday, Kayli literally ran out of the truck into the green pastures of Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary (WFAS).† Watch the video of her enjoyment at finally being free.

Having spent the mandatory two weeks in quarantine at Quakertown Veterinary Clinic, Kayli was pronounced healthy and allowed to travel to WFAS.† For a joyful look at photos of her arrival at WFAS enjoy the Flickr feed.

I hope Kayli got to say hello to Philly, the chicken rescued outside the slaughterhouse who was also sent to WFAS.

If you are struck by the determination of Kayli to stay alive and are touched by the work of WFAS and other sanctuaries like it, consider learning about the vegan lifestyle.† Information is free and painless.

This story is truly heart warming, and yet I can't stop thinking about all of Kayli's companions...who never got the chance to live without fear as she has.

a positive focus but one among how many that are slaughtered daily who get no reprieve

Found this video footage of Kayli, and she certainly seems very active and intelligent. Never thought of a cow as adorable, but now I'm starting to.

“The Puranas state that it is forbidden to kill cows under any circumstances. Those who fail to give cows reverence and protection and choose to sell a cow for slaughter or kill her himself or permit the slaughter of cows will all rot in the darkest regions of hell for as many thousands of years as there are hairs on the body of each cow slain. There is no atonement for the killing of a cow. The cow is a goddess with her own personal heaven like all the other major gods. It is called Goloka. Think of that when you see the next truck at night carrying cows to slaughter. Have you done anything to stop the trade?”
