A cow that had apparently broken out of a slaughterhouse on Wednesday morning has met its death, authorities in Cincinnati said.

The animal escaped the Tri State Beef Co, causing at least one passerby to document its freedom on social media.

The meat wholesaler followed the cow, which police described to as “confused” and “nervous,” eventually killing it near a McDonald’s.

Police said there were no injuries as a result of the incident and that there would be no investigation into the matter.
