This Baby Cow Was Raised By A Kindly Deer Family After Escaping From A Meat Farm ❤️

By Collin Gossel

When she was just four months old, Bonnie the cow heard her family being rounded up for slaughter at a meat farm in Holland, New York. In a moment when her keepers were distracted, she seized the opportunity to escape into the nearby woods. Word of Bonnie's escape circulated through the community. People would send in reports of Bonnie-sightings in the woods for weeks to come, prompting the obvious question: "How is she surviving alone in the woods after a childhood of captivity?"

The answer was simpler than many expected: Bonnie was not alone. She had been adopted by a family of deer!
