Baltimore police shoot cow running loose in city

Baltimore police say officers shot a cow that had escaped from a city slaughterhouse on a downtown street.

Sgt. Sarah Connolly, a police spokeswoman, says the animal was shot shortly after 10:15 a.m. at the intersection of Charles and Biddle streets in the Mount Vernon neighborhood.

Connolly says she believes the animal was killed, but that hasn’t been confirmed. She says it no longer poses a threat. Police believe it escaped from a slaughterhouse in west Baltimore.

Connolly says police received calls from business owners concerned about the animal running loose on the streets. The neighborhood is home to numerous bars, restaurants and shops.
