People online are reacting to a video showing 40 cows stampeding through a quiet California suburb.On Tuesday night, the Los Angeles County Sheriffs received multiple calls about a herd of cows ambling through Pico Rivera, a city 11 miles from LA.Cows spotted on Beverly Road and Beverly Blvd. Lmao! #PicoRivera. pic.twitter.com/2VDny7wBay— The Sons of Pico Rivera (@tehsonsofpico) June 23, 2021 "They went into somebody's yard," one woman exclaimed in shock on the video, while another bystander yelled "Moo" at the cows.The cows escaped a meat-packing plant after someone left a gate open, and they managed to tear through chain-link fences. While no one was injured at the plant, one of the cows did charge and injure a family of four, and as a result was shot and killed by a sheriff's deputy.Eventually, authorities brought a group of experienced ranchers to corral the cows in a cul de sac. All 39 cows ended up herded into trailers and returned to the meat-packing plant they escaped from.While their return to the meat-packing plant proves more convenient for neighbors navigating wild cows, there is a sadness to the fact that they finally found freedom and were sent to their death.PETA released a statement about the incident, noting this: "PETA wishes the cows who escaped from a slaughterhouse into a Pico Rivera, California, neighborhood on Tuesday had made it to freedom, something they fought hard to gain, instead of being rounded up and returned to the slaughterhouse or — in one cow's case — being shot on the scene by law enforcement." Unsurprisingly, when the video of the cows hit the internet, people had a lot of responses - ranging from concern to jokes.there is a slaughterhouse right there and an entrance to the 605 on Beverly Bl ....can you imagine if they had gotten on the freeway....where's a cowboy when you need one......— Carol Madrid (@flacademtb) June 23, 2021 Who let the cows out? Who? Who?— Camelia Vera,REALTOR (@cvvera) June 23, 2021 That would be Moo? Moo?— Linda Burnett (@birdbike719) June 23, 2021 My ass would run too. There not dumb. They know what’s going on and weee they are. I know we need beef. Bug that’s sad knowing you got away and now you have to go back. Hell no.— kem mason (@kem_mason) June 23, 2021 They probably escaped from a feedlot. Protect them at all cost and go vegan #govegan 🌱🌱🌱🌱— natiⓋe leftist⁷ (@mandydeville) June 23, 2021 They deserve to be spared!— Lisa Gorski Kowalski (@scaatyrs) June 23, 2021 They escaped Fair and Square, allow them their freedom!— Pittsburgh Mom (@PghMom_3) June 23, 2021 If the cows escape again, we can't say we haven't all been warned.
