Runaway cow heads to bigscreen

Moo-ving toon tale set for 2014 release

The story of a runaway cow that smashed through an electric fence and escaped to freedom in the Bavarian hills last year is making it to the bigscreen.

Animation producer Max Howard, Munich’s Papa Loewe Filmproduktion, Torsten Poeck of Munich financing outfit Clou Partners and U.K.-based writer-producer Kirsty Peart have joined up to produce the animated bovine adventure, “Cow on the Run,” slated for a 2014 release.

Raised on an Austrian farm before she was torn away from her calves and sold for slaughter, Yvonne the irate cow managed to flee and elude her captors for three months, outwitting expert trackers equipped with a helicopter and heat-seeking equipment.

The producers are collaborating with the Gut Aiderbichl animal sanctuary in Bavaria, where Yvonne now lives in peace and far away from the slaughterhouse.
