When Bonnie the cow escaped the clutches of farmers who were about to take her to slaughter, she disappeared into some nearby woods. And for months, nothing was known about the brave bovine; she’d seemingly vanished off the face of the Earth. Then, however, cameras would manage to capture some unbelievable scenes.

Bonnie was brought into the world on a farm in Holland, New York. And for the first few months of her life, the calf grew up among her friends and family. That seemingly idyllic life would not last, though, as ultimately Bonnie and her fellow cattle were being raised for beef.

Then, after the farm’s owner died, his family chose to sell the cows. As a result, when Bonnie was only four months old, she found herself on the way to slaughter. And while the calf was still young and dependent on her mother, she may nevertheless have had a gut feeling that something terrible awaited her.
