Runaway heifer finds sanctuary


A HEIFER that escaped from a slaughterhouse has won a reprieve.

A Plymouth animal charity that praised its sense of survival has raised £1000 to send the animal to a Norwich sanctuary.

The animal charged past slaughtermen at Kingsbridge, Devon, on arriving from a farm last week and ran into the town.

The heifer was caught in a field after armed police and a helicopter were called.
