Cows Want Freedom, Too

After hearing Bush's repeated calls for freedom, a cow named Molly decided to take his advice and escape from a Montana slaughterhouse, leading workers and police on a six-hour chase. After the public expressed support for her dash to freedom, Del Morris, the manger of Mickey's Packing Plant in Great Falls, decided to let Molly live:
"I've been around cattle all my life, and it's just totally amazing," Morris said, adding that it is a rare cow that escapes slaughter. "I watched her do things that are just not possible for a cow."


Unfortunately, the very public that cheered for Molly's freedom will probably eat one of her friends for dinner.

Better still, maybe one of Molly's friends will be ground into hamburger and someone with a N.E.A. grant will sculpt the ground meat into a work of art, thus enriching all of our lives.

A great story about freedom! I am a vegetarian and totally can relate to this poor cow who knew what was happening inside those horrifying slaughterhouses. Thanks for the article.

I also heard you on Quake radio early Saturday with Willie Brown and Will Durst. I live up in Sonoma County and enjoyed listening to your stories on traveling thru the red states. I intend to enjoy your blog, too. :)

Isn't anyone going to congratulate me for not jumping all over this?
