We reported that a cow bound for the slaughterhouse slipped out of a truck, and wandered along a New Jersey highway until it was caught. After taken to an animal shelter, the cow gave birth.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin with an update on the rescued cow. We reported yesterday that a cow was bound for the slaughterhouse when it slipped out of a truck and wandered around a New Jersey highway until it was caught. She was then taken to a shelter. And on this New Year's Day, we can give you more news. The shelter says the cow, named Brianna, has become a mother. The calf is a girl, appropriately named Winter, and Winter seems completely unaffected by her mother's tumble off a truck. It's MORNING EDITION.
