BORDER-CROSSING COW SPARED FROM DEATH PENALTY
Penka the cow has been spared from being put to death for border crossing. The cow crossed from her native Bulgaria, a member of the European Union, into neighboring Serbia, which is not a member of the EU. Any animal crossing into the EU must do so with the proper paperwork, something that Penka didn’t, hence, her death sentence. Many Europeans have appealed for mercy for thee cow, including ex-beatle Sir Paul Mccartney. Authorities decided to spare Penka’s life after it was proven that she was in good health.
