Cows Bound For Slaughterhouse Now Living At Wyckoff, N.J. Petting Zoo
WYCKOFF, N.J. (CBSNewYork) - Two cows that were on the lam in Bergen County this week have found a new home.
As WCBS 880’s Sean Adams reported, the cows escaped from a rented trailer in Montvale on Tuesday as their owner tried to take them to a slaughterhouse.
Animal control lassoed the young male and female and called Abma’s Farm in Wyckoff.
“Next thing you know, now we got these two cows that we acquired to be here,” Jim Abma told Adams.
Abma said the black and white boy is known as “Half-and-Half” but they haven’t yet settled on a name for the brown and white girl.
Abma said the cows are still very young and a little shy.
“Last night, I came in here after we fed them and sat with one for a little while, and ended up getting the brown one to eat out of my hand already. So, hopefully in the next couple of days we’ll get them right up to the fence and people can pet them and they’ll be much more comfortable around people,” Abma told Adams.
For the time being, the petting zoo is home.
The former owner in Montvale received a summons for improper transportation.
