Cow that escaped slaughter on I-80 gives birth at sanctuaryPosted: Updated:
The same Briana the Bovine who led police on a small chase in Paterson Thursday is back in the spotlight after giving birth Saturday to a baby calf.
Briana was brought to Skylands Animal Sanctuary and Rescue in Wantage after escaping from a truck driving on Interstate-80 that was delivering her to a slaughterhouse. Little did her rescuers know, she was nine months pregnant.
Sanctuary owner Mike Stura tells News 12 New Jersey that Briana’s calf, Winter, is the first bovine to ever be born on his farm.
He says Briana and her baby are welcome at his sanctuary for as long as he can maintain it.
