Brianna the Cow’s rescue prompts bill that could protect slaughtering pregnant animals

First she saved herself and her unborn baby, and now, Brianna the Cow could go on to save hundreds of pregnant farm animals from being slaughtered – with a new bill in her name. 

The bovine became internet famous last month after she narrowly escaped death by jumping from a moving double-decker trailer that was on its way to a New Jersey slaughterhouse. 

Brianna was rescued and brought back to Skylands Animal Sanctuary & Rescue in Wantage where vets discovered she was pregnant and she gave birth two days later. 

And now, John Decando, the Chief Animal Control Officer in Paterson, tells DailyMail.com, talks are underway for ‘Brianna’s Law’ which will prohibit selling ‘gestating’ cows for slaughter.

‘I feel great,’ Decando said. ‘I have been doing this for 40 years and I knew I had to do something for the sake of these animals. I feel like Brianna was trying to give us all a message.’ 

Decando got the ball rolling by sending off letters to state representatives after learning Brianna was after her dramatic rescue.

The bill will now be discussed before a committee and then go in front of the assembly in Trenton, New Jersey where it will be voted on.

‘I want everyone to come out and support the bill. Call the New Jersey senate and assembly and express your support for these pregnant farm animals. Write letters. I never ever want to see this happen again to another animal,’ Decando added. 

‘Hopefully other states will jump on the bandwagon and make it a national law for all pregnant farm animals, Decando adds. ‘Just like people, I believe animals have souls and it’s our job to help them.’      

Brianna and her calf Winter are living at the animal sanctuary where they both remain in the good care and good health. 

The sanctuary is home to 70 cows, along with goats, sheep, chickens, turkeys, ducks, a goose named Ted and three miniature donkeys.  

Its founder Mike Stura told DailyMail.com he’s eager to see a new law created.

‘We can’t even begin to imagine what’s going thru the minds of these pregnant animals knowing they and their babies are going to be slaughtered. There’s power in numbers, so let’s all send in letters and take action. Let’s do what we can to protect these and all animals.’  

The baby cow was born on December 29 with the help of Stura who made sure both mom and baby were safe after the delivery.

‘Oh she was happy, she was so relieved you could see it,’ Stura says. 

‘Mom came right over and licked the baby clean. I dried the baby with a towel and then the vet arrived about 20 minutes later. I stayed with her and the baby for a long time, for hours. The baby tried to stand up in just 15 minutes, and was successful in about 25 minutes. I led her to mom’s teat and she took right at it. Winter goes everywhere mom goes.’     

The bill proposes slaughtering a gestating cow is a crime of the fourth degree, and provides for the imposition of a minimum fine of $3,000 to a maximum of $10,000 for each conviction.
