Yvonne, a cow who escaped from a slaughterhouse in Austria last year, will be the subject of an animated feature film in 2014. Cow on the Run, the film’s tentative title, will center around Yvonne, who was raised on a farm in Austria and shipped to a slaughterhouse in Germany last August.

Yvonne was eventually caught, and taken to Gut Aiderbichl animal sanctuary in Bavaria, where she now lives.
