On the evening of April 10th a calf made a break from a slaughterhouse in Paterson, NJ. He eluded capture for hours and even waded into the Passaic River (yuck!). Police used vehicles to ram into the calf in an effort to bring him under control.

Good news ! Pretty sleazy that the slaughterhouse owner lied outright !
But since he does own & operate a slaughterhouse I already despise him !

What the hell is wrong with the "boys in blue" that they rammed the poor calf with their vehicles?? It is a calf , it isn't vicious and it isn't going to eat them ! Good for the calf that he escaped, and Kudos to the human Mike for finding him and retreiving him ! !

Kudos to Mike "Sr." for his persistence. I hope Mike Jr. has found his forever home - What a tale he could tell!

Yay for Mike. He's no dummy-he knew nothing good was going to be at the end of that truck ride. If only htose cows and bulls could organize and have a mass revolt!

If only everyone would realize that eating animals is not good for you and that you are taking someone's life away, someone that wanted to live, Mike is proof that they have fear and feel pain!!

What a cutie. All animals want to live as much as you and I. We need to give them that chance that they so deserve. Stop eating meat and dairy. Put the factory farms out of business. Don't contribue to animal cruelty.
