Escape of cattle from St. Louis slaughterhouse spurs roundup”

Omar Hamdan with Star Packing Company says an open gate at the slaughterhouse allowed the kosher heifers to slip free - the first such escape Hamdan says he's seen in more than 40 years in the business.

One of the cattle was captured at 14th and Destrehan Street; two others at Little Sisters of the Poor in a fenced-in area; and three were in another area near 20th Street and Bremen Avenue.

It took animal control officers and Humane Society staff about four hours to capture all six of the escaped cattle.

Asked about Hamdan's offer to sell the crafty cattle, Coston said the farm doesn't pay for any animals.

That's prompted a vegetarian man from suburban St. Louis to launch an online fundraising push to buy the animals' freedom.
