A young cow got loose from a Halal market and as the cow was being chased, they caught it in the back lot of a Home Depot store.
They didn’t try to herd the steer back to the market but instead slaughtered it right there in the parking lot. One of the Halal market employees brought his bow and arrow but when he shot, he missed and the arrow stuck in the Home Depot wall.
Badr Musaed, an employee of the Halal store whipped out a huge knife and slit the steer’s throat right there on the spot.
A young cow escaped slaughter at a Connecticut meat market — only to have its throat slit in public in Home Depot parking lot, according to a new report.
The gory scene prompted the closure of the Saba meat store in Bloomfield, which kept livestock on its premises to be prepared in accordance with Islamic law, NBC Connecticut reported.
The cow dashed out of Saba on Saturday and ran across the street to the hardware store — with employee Badr Musaed and a contractor Andy Morrison hot on its trail.
Morrison, who was doing renovation work at the meat store and was armed with a bow and arrow, tried to help Musaed corral the cow while the local police also responded.
Dash camera footage obtained by NBC shows the officer trying to box the bovine in with his cruiser — and Morrison attempting to shoot it with his weapon.
“As the cow ran towards the employees, Morrison shot at the cow, however he missed and the arrow struck the wall of the Home Depot,” the police report said.
Suddenly, Musaed whipped out a foot-long knife and slit the cow’s throat as other Saba employees wrangled the animal.
The officer was stunned over the disturbing act.
