A cow that escaped an abattoir in Carlisle has been shot dead by armed police.
A farmer and officers tried to capture the animal, which was discovered near the Honda and BMW garages in an industrial estate just off the M6 this morning.
The young, brown cow was last seen heading down Kingstown Road, towards Carlisle city centre
Police say they 'destroyed' the animal 'humanely' following in a housing estate close to where they found the cow, after concerns grew from the public and drivers.
It's thought it fled from West Scottish Lamb Limited, an abattoir near to where the heifer was found.
People took to Twitter to share support for the cow, which is being named "Daisy".
