Police in Moscow arrested an American woman for walking a cow through Red Square this week.

According to a judge in a Moscow district court, Alicia Day "who is a vegetarian and animal rights activist, was walking on Red Square using a calf as visual propaganda and shouting the slogan 'animals are not food.'"

Day was arrested on Tuesday for taking part in an unsanctioned protest.

The court said she resisted arrest and was fined about 290 dollars.
