The six cows who escaped a slaughter-house in St. Louis are now safe and healing in the hospital. All of them had cuts, scrapes, and bruises from being rounded up by the authorities with cars. The worst off was Spirit who had a broken foot. His foot is now set and bandaged and veterinarians are saying he’ll heal completely in 10–12 weeks. He is on pain medication and lots of Sun Chlorella Algae Super Food, and with lots of rest he should get through this and on to his happily ever after.
We were not budgeted for this rescue, but we stepped in to save them when no one else would. Thank you so much for your continued support for their vet care, and for following their story, we cannot do this one without you!
