Live Cattle at Shopping Mall to Help With The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign in Fort Worth

Nearly every year, a non-charity-minded cow makes a break for it and has to be chased down
In true Cowtown fashion, a group of Fort Worth cowboys on horseback will drive a herd of cattle one mile around Ridgmar Mall for the official kickoff of The Salvation Army’s red kettle campaign in Fort Worth. When finished, walkers will receive a sticker that says, “I walked a mile for the kettle.”

Following the cattle, a Salvation Army brass band will play western tunes from atop a rustic wagon. The Salvation Army commanders, Salvation Army officers and workers will ring cowbells instead of traditional bells as they ride on a horse-drawn wagon. Kids will ride in the mall’s mini train while another kind of kine, the Chick-fil-A cow, helps keep everything moo-ving along. Salvation Army volunteers and workers will carry kettles and ring cowbells as they hoof it around the exterior of the mall.

Nearly every year, one of the cows makes a break for it. One year, a cowboy on horseback chased a cow nearly to I-30. Another year, a cow ran towards jcpenney and crashed against a plate glass window (without breaking it). This must have been a cow of moo-dest means since she chose shopping at jcpenney instead of Neiman Marcus.
