Cow escapes slaughterhouse, crashes into home

A cow being dropped off at a Greene County slaughterhouse ran out of the trailer it was in and broke into a home, causing $10,000 worth of damage.

The cow crashed through a glass door at the home on Graceland Lane in Afton and destroyed the floors in the kitchen, den and dining room.

According to a report from the sheriff's office, the cow also damaged a refrigerator, dishwasher and dining room set.

Deputies say the cow finally left the house through the back door.

The report did not say what happened to the cow following the incident.

Log homes built with modern touch in Dandridge

Log homes built with modern touch in Dandridge

Log homes have a long history in the United States and in East Tennessee.

A local company is continuing the tradition of building the houses by using modern technology.

"We've got Douglas-fir here. This is yellow pine. This is eastern white pine. Then we have some pieces of oak over here, both red and white," Jobe Leonard explained.

Most of the wood at the log home maker in Dandridge comes from trees in and around East Tennessee.
