A herd of cows living at Hillside Animal Sanctuary after being spared the slaughterhouse have been featured in an episode of the BBC's Countryfile.
The programme showed the sanctuary in Frettenham, Norwich, in an episode which aired on Sunday, July 2.
The cows came to Hillside after their vegetarian owner Jay Wilde, of Bradley Nook Farm in Derbyshire, found he couldn't bear to send the animals to be killed.
The herd, which would have been worth £40,000 to Mr Wilde, has been rehomed in Norfolk. Bradley Nook is also being converted into an organic vegetable farm.
The programme aired at 7pm on Sunday and also featured an interview with Mr Wilde and Countryfile presenter Adam Henson.
