German police said they used an automatic weapon to shoot a calf that fled from an abattoir in an escape attempt that contrasts starkly with the happy ending of British boars Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Pig. The calf absconded after being delivered to a slaughterhouse in Fulda, in central Germany. A police spokesman said it seized its opportunity and fled, running for several miles across fields and getting close to a railway line and a main road before being killed.
