State assemblyman introduces bill to protect pregnant cows

Posted: Updated:
NEW JERSEY -

A state assemblyman has introduced a bill that would make it illegal to transport, sell or slaughter a pregnant cow.

The bill is called "Brianna's law," named after a cow that escaped from a transport truck on Route 80 in late December.

That truck was on its way to a slaughterhouse.

Brianna later gave birth, and both she and her calf are at an animal sanctuary in Sussex County.
