After their release from a slaughterhouse, 10 cows remain free
By Peter Young on Sep 21, 2013
Ten cows go uncaptured after the ALF freed them from a Michigan slaughterhouse.
On August 26th, 15 cows were freed from a slaughterhouse in North Branch,
It was among the more unusual actions ever claimed by the Animal Liberation
Front -- so unusual I didn't cover it here. Like most, I felt freeing
domesticated animals into the streets to fend for themselves was of no benefit
to the cows, save for giving them perhaps a few hours of relative freedom before
being rounded up.
I was wrong.
Days after the the 15 cows were released, 10 remain free. There have been
numerous sightings, but by the time police arrive the animals have vanished.
Some of the cows have been spotted several miles away, and they may have entered
a nearby 9,000-acre state wildlife area.
The Animal Liberation Front communique reads:
"In the early morning of August 26th two ALF members traveled three hours to a
small town called North Branch, MI to vandalize and liberate a family
slaughterhouse called 'Mcnee’s Meats' - years prior the beef they sold was even
tested positive for E. Coli. One member glued the ignition to the transport
truck and the lock to the front door as well as sprayed painted 'Meat is Murder'
on the front of the building. The other member freed fifteen enslaved cows from
being slaughtered, broke the lighting fixtures, and smashed holding cages for
chickens (cows being the only animals present)."
