Bonnie the cow was from a local farm and as they were herding the cows together to go to the slaughterhouse, she took her chance to escape. She ran as far as she could to get away. People noticed her on their property, although she was very evasive when they approached.

Bonnie was understandably afraid of people and lived in the wild for quite a while. During her running-free period, she befriended some deer, who accepted her and gave her the companionship she needed. The deer understood that Bonnie was distressed and lonely and they took her in as one of their own.
