According to KSHB Channel 41, the unnamed cow (we don't name what we eat) managed to get past a fence and was found wandering in several fast-food parking lots by Blue Springs police. It stopped in at Sonic and Planet Sub before police made the decision to take down the rogue animal, fearing it might wander into traffic on Interstate 70.
The cow was then apparently returned to the processing plant, which is about a mile and a half from the cluster of fast-food joints near the intersection of NW Mock Avenue and Missouri Highway 7. A manager at the Winter Meat Processing Plant informed Channel 41 that the cow was "being processed."
Perhaps the cow was simply looking to put in an application to be a mascot at Chick-Fil-A, which is two miles away from the plant. Either way, it likely wished that we ate more chicken.
