NEW YORK (Reuters) - A cow escaped death when it fled a New York City slaughterhouse on Wednesday, running through the streets before being corralled by mounted police.

The escape appears to have earned the cow a free pass -- it will be turned over to an animal care agency rather then sent back to the slaughterhouse in the New York City borough of Queens, police said.
