A British teenager has started a campaign to save her dear friend, a cow, from the slaughterhouse.
Catherine Green, 17, lives on her family's farm in Lincolnshire, England, where she helps tend to the sheep and cattle they raise for meat.
When she met one very special cow named Leena, she knew she couldn't let her suffer the same fate. She launched a campaign to buy the cow from her father so she can send her to live out her days in a sanctuary.
"She is the most lovely and gentle natured cow we have ever had but she is destined to end up on someone's dinner table," Green wrote on her Go Fund Me page. "We have hundreds of cows on the farm and I wish I could save them all but Leena has become very special to me and I can't allow myself to let her die purely to be consumed by humans."
