The Elk Houdini

by Nikki Mann

This cow figured out how to open the gate and escape from the squeeze chutes after having her blood drawn and receiving an identification collar. Game and Fish drew blood from 79 cows at Muddy Creek on Monday. Thirteen cows were classified “seropositive” for brucellosis and shipped to a USDA slaughterhouse in Idaho on Tuesday. The escaped cow fortunately tested negative for brucellosis.
