State assemblyman introduces bill to protect pregnant cows
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.
