Workers wrangle cattle in north St. Louis after slaughterhouse escape

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, who has some wild photos of the police chase, reports the animals escaped through an unsecured door at the Star Parking Co about 1 p.m. Thursday. Officers were seen holding tranquilizer rifles.

Undaunted, the heifers trotted through traffic while SWAT officers, animal control and the Humane Society of Missouri all tried to round them up.

The cattle's bold dash for freedom prompted efforts to save them from the slaughterhouse.

The cattle attracted groups of onlookers in each of the areas.

Gentle Barn co-founder Jay Weiner says his animal sanctuary intends to keep the steers either at its Tennessee farm or a new one.

Workers on Thursday afternoon, March 30th are working to wrangle six cattle that escaped from a slaughterhouse! "They're just running for their life", Farm Sanctuary director Susie Coston said.

Slaughterhouse owner Omar Hamdan said the farm leaders can have the cattle, all of which he said were heifers, for a price.

Police blocked off streets in attempt to stop them, but it was not until 6 p.m. that all six cattle were captured, news station KTVI reported.

'If anyone wants to buy them that's fine, ' Hamdan said Thursday.
