The cows that escaped a North st. louis  slaughterhouse two weeks ago are settling into a temporary home.

A GoFundMe was started to save the cows.

They're currently staying in Columbia at Mizzou's animal hospital.

A couple of the cows are sick.

Gentle Barn Animal Sanctuary will eventually take them to their permanent home either in California or Tennessee.

Wherever they end up as related to the gentle barn, they're going to stay together. That's our goal at least because we kind of see them as a group.

A Go Fund Me page for the cows has raised $15,000 which will help Gentle Barn.

Former Blues Player David Backes and his wife will match that donation.
