Yvonne Cow Caught
Yvonne Cow Caught. YVONNE, the heifer who hot-footed it to freedom 98 days ago as she was about to be sent to the slaughterhouse, has apparently decided to end her lonely life on the run and joined four other cows in a pasture.Since May, the cult cow made constant headlines as she briefly appeared and then vanished again in the German countryside, a veritable bovine Bonnie without her Clyde, enjoying life on the lam. Those trying to catch her brought in a "cow whisperer" who said she was communicating with Yvonne by telepathy, infrared cameras, a tracker with experience in Africa and, when all else failed, a bull named Ernst who was supposed to lure her out with his voice.
Even Yvonne's son Friesi was roped in to help, but didn't have any luck.

So it was with surprise and many exclamation points that German newspaper Bild reported that Yvonne showed up Tuesday night at a farm in the Muhldorf area, near the Austrian border, and joined four young cows in a pasture.

The Gut Aiderbichl animal sanctuary, which bought Yvonne while she was a fugitive, reported she was positively identified through an ear tag and chipped horn, Bild said.
Now it's on to a life of retirement at the sanctuary for Yvonne and a reunion with other cow relatives already residing there. The farmer can look forward to the US$14,000 reward the paper posted for her safe return.
