Some stills I took from Tayside house CCTV when I worked there of a cow escaping from the abattoir in Dundee and dashing to freedom over the Tay bridge through oncoming traffic. This happened on 07th July 2000 about 10:30am, ignore the time and date on the stills, it was always wrong on the system.
The cow got out of the abattoir, negotiated the dock street traffic then made it's way onto the bridge, bashed the bonnet of a car that tried to block it halfway across the mile and a half long bridge and then broke through a chain of cops at the Fife side to get away from being slaughtered. It then got to live on a sanctuary afterwards. A great escape indeed.
Happily the abattoir is no more...
