Chico the cow, living in sanctuary at The Gentle Barn Missouri

Chico was sent to slaughter with 5 other young cows, but he wanted to live. Chico, wise beyond his years, led the others through three fences and ran through the streets of St Louis seeking refuge. Chico even held authorities at bay behind a tree so his brothers could run away. He is brave, wise, strong, and will show the world that when given a chance cows always choose life. The St Louis Six will live together at The Gentle Barn Missouri for the rest of their lives, safe and sound.
