When a cow named Molly escaped from a New York City slaughterhouse on Wednesday, she managed to get a mile away before she was corralled and brought to Animal Care and Control to await her fate—but don’t worry! Fate was smiling on Molly. The lucky lady, whom some feared might be sent back to the slaughterhouse, has instead been sent to a farm sanctuary on Long Island, where she will be able to live out the rest of her days in peace.
Inspiring, no? Of course, we already know just how amazing animals are, but thanks to Molly, even more people are making that discovery—including none other than Barbara Walters! On The View Thursday morning, Barbara said that Molly’s adventure has inspired her to lean even more toward a vegetarian diet—and that she’d be bringing her own veggie burgers to the next White House dinner.
This is, of course, awesome—although I do hope that the White House will be able to offer up something a little fancier! Hmm…maybe it’s time to hook them up with our Fine Faux Foie Gras challenge…
