steers flee after seeing McDonald’s

November 15, 2007

I pretty much love stories about animals escaping their fate and ending up at a farm animal sanctuary somewhere, or never being found again.

This story … I don’t know how I feel about it. These steers ended up being herded back onto the truck, of which they were most likely on because they were on their way to slaughter.


original story

WEST HAVEN, Utah – McDonald’s? The burger joint? Stampede! Eight cows escaped from a trailer when the rear gate opened as the driver pulled into a McDonald’s. It took about two hours to round them up Monday.

“Maybe they were going to … hop in the freezer, save the middleman,” Weber County sheriff‘s Sgt. Dave Creager said.

Lt. Kevin Burns had another theory: “They didn’t like their future.” [Or maybe they just wanted out of that fucking truck!]
The roundup was called “Operation Hamburger Helper.” A nearby resident even hopped on his horse. [Gee, what a clever name.]
“I thought my eyes were lying,” said Wayne Sanders, who was at a truck stop next door. “I don’t know where they came from, but I’d say they’d have to weigh 800 pounds apiece and they were on a pretty good trot.”
