Back during my reporting days in Abilene, TX, a little traffic jam caused by a cow crossing the road was no biggie. Shit happens. Cows gonna cow.
Here in New York City, this cow is not only causing hours of delays for drivers that I’m sure are beyond furious, but it’s getting the best care available from both NYC’s bravest and finest.
And if that wasn’t enough…
Major Deegan will live at an animal sanctuary for the rest of his life. A place I’m sure is filled organic grass and filtered water, whose rent is so astronomically high, most people would say to themselves, “They do know they’re spending this money on a cow, right?”
The Texan in me is now starving, but the New Yorker in me is proud of this fine city and the diligent work we put into securing the safety and well-being of every single life. Steak included.
