And here we have video of a bull or a steer that escaped from a Queens slaughterhouse running along Liberty Avenue in Jamaica. Bystanders, including the YouTube user who took the video, laugh gleefully as the noble beast runs for its life, ultimately winding up trapped on the grounds of York College campus of the City University of New York. There it sought sanctuary in one of the buildings at the health and physical education complex but Fox 5 reports, "ended up hitting construction scaffolding that was set up around the buildings."

Finally, two men, one still wearing a slaughterhouse cover-up, managed to subdue the animal and bring its desperate dash for freedom to an end. It all sounds very slapstick and farcical, as long as you don't dwell on the fact that by the time you read this, it has probably been slaughtered.
