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.
