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.

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