A cow that escaped from a slaughterhouse in a New Jersey city will be spared.

The black-and-white bovine was running through the streets of Paterson sometime after 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Animal control officer John De Cando tells The Record newspaper it was like "Dodge City" with police cars trying to corral the 750-pound animal. But the cow managed to break loose.
 
De Cando tranquilized the cow after it became trapped between a fire hydrant and a truck.
 
De Cando says the slaughterhouse owner has promised to take the animal to a farm.
 
No one was injured.
