LAKE PRESTON, Australia (AP) – It’s one thing for a cow to be fattened up for slaughter.
But this got way out of hand.
The internet is abuzz with talk about Knickers – a black-and-white Holstein that has literally gotten too big to be beef.
Photos posted online show Knickers standing head and shoulders above the herd of cattle he hangs with in Lake Preston, Australia.
And there is a pretty good chance he will get to hang out with that herd for a while – and outlive it.
Instead of being divvied up into steaks and burgers, Knickers has been deemed to be too big for the slaughterhouse – and will live out its days in fields southwest of Perth, Australia.
