Runaway steer causes commotion as it flees slaughter

A steer caused a commotion along Old Bloomfield Pike and Veterans Parkway Thursday morning when he decided he would not be led to the slaughter, literally.

“He came out of the trailer just cool as a cucumber,” said Terry Armstrong of Leitchfield, who was unloading the steer into a pen behind Boone’s Butcher Shop when it slipped through a gap between the gate and his trailer and bolted.
