When the cow Bonnie was 4 months, her quiet life on the farm pasture has changed dramatically.
The owner of the farm located in the state of new York, died, and all his animals were Packed into vans to take him to the cattle auction and sell to other farmers for milk or meat.
Bonnie for some reason rebelled and during loading ran away from his herd in a nearby forest. It was last summer and since then, people from time to time met this cow in the woods, but nobody has been able to catch her.
Bonnie kept away from the people and became for all local residents living myth.
When the autumn came, and then winter, it seemed that the cow is not able to survive in the woods and freeze or starve to death. But it is still seen regularly. Sometimes Bonnie came very close to farms, sometimes just walking on the edge of the forest, and was caught on a hunting camera.
Different was the public opinion about what should be done with this cow. Someone was happy that she lived a free life, and someone offered to catch it and to put on burgers. Two groups tried to find her in the woods not found and then the cow was caught again on camera and it became clear that helped her to survive the winter — she was not alone but with a herd of deer.
It looked like the deer had taken her into his family, and maybe she got in the deer herd as a calf, immediately after the escape.
However many people are increasingly saying that the domesticated cow is not a place in the forest among wild animals and it is much more difficult than the deer need in the winter when all the food is hidden under the snow. And then a local resident Becky began to come into the woods and leave it there for Bonnie food, water and fresh hay.
Every day Becky sledge brought the food in a certain time and soon Bonnie began to know her and other deer also came to eat at this place. After that, a group of animal rights activists after several attempts finally got Bonnie and took her to a shelter for farm animals.
Now Bonnie has for some time lived in the shelter and here she has a warm and reliable shelter and a place to walk. She even managed to make friends with another rescued a young cow.
