The latest update is that they're going to let her live. The workers at the plant voted 10-1 that they didn't have the heart to slaughter her themselves. I think she's proven her will to survive, at this point. Some cows are too lazy and dull to even try to escape from a perilous situation. We have an old family story about a burning barn and several cows who stood in front of the open barn door, and rather than making a break for it, stood there and burned to death instead.
Free Bessie! Bless her dumb, sweet little bovine heart.
