Will Fugitive German Cow Become Hamburger?

"The search is on in Bavaria for an Austrian cow named Yvonne who has been on the loose since May when she escaped from the farm where she was being fattened up for slaughter. The wily runaway has become a local celebrity of sorts in the southern German state. She has outsmarted police officers and has become known for grazing at night, like a deer. But her days of freedom might soon come to an end, as officials in the Mühldorf district have decided that, for security reasons, she can be shot."

I think it's fascinating that a cow headed to slaughter who escapes in NYC generally gets a pass but not in rural Germany. Pretty funny that the odds for a cow are better here!

@mjfrombuffalo Once Germans decide to execute something, they're very hard to dissuade.
