A cow which staged an escape while being taken to a slaughterhouse has been living alone on an island.
When the slaughterhouse workers arrived to take away the cow, they were told it told it would be best to tranquilize the feisty bovine.
But they ignored the advice and as it came out of its shed to be loaded onto to the lorry.
Instead it rammed a metal fence before making a dash for the nearby Lake Nysa, south Poland, Polish news show Wiadomosci reported
A farmworker ended up with a broken arm and bruised ribs during the escape, in which the cow was seem to dive underwater as it made its way to the island.
After a week of trying and failing to get the cow back, the farmer, known only as Mr Lukasz, gave up and began making sure it was fed enough food to stay alive
When firefighters used a boat to get to the island, the cow swam about 50 metres to a neighbouring peninsula.
