Everybody loves a waterslide – even Brazilian cows!
In a dramatic and bizarre run for freedom, a cow pegged for slaughter escaped from a cattle ranch 500 miles west of Rio de Janeiro this week, and bolted to an adjacent water park.
Once there, the cow climbed the stairs of a waterslide and slowly slid down into the pool.
