A second chance: pardoned PA cow sent to Woodstock

    A Pennsylvania cow who received a second chance after it was pardoned by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett, is on her way to New York.

    In a story published by the Associated Press, the pardoned cow is making her way to  her new home in Woodstock in Upstate New York.

    The cow, named “Kayli,” was being uploaded into a holding pen in Upper Darby last month when she broke away.  According to the Associated Press, during the escape, the cow ran into a car and caused minor damage.

    Shortly after the escape, Governor Corbett pardoned the cow, which had been placed in quarantine at the state’s Quakertown Veterinary Clinic.

    Kayli is now making her way to New York, where she will stay with the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary.
