Ireland's Gay Bull Benjy Saved From Slaughterhouse

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A bull that was going to be sent to the slaughter house for being gay has been saved by the actions of terminally ill Simpsons creator Sam Simon.


Benjy the Irish bull was destined for the butcher`s after he failed to show any interest in the female cows on his farm in County Mayo and instead  gravitated towards the other bulls.

But the Hollywood producer and long-term vegan has bought the animal`s freedom by donating £5,000 to buy Benjy and transport him to a sanctuary in time for Christmas."

The Independent

I`m cognizant of the sad fact that the destiny of most bulls is to end up as sandwiches, but to single out a bull for the slaughterhouse because he`s gay is just wrong.

Benjy is a beautiful white bull with a gentle disposition, and I`m delighted that he will live at the Hillside Animal Sanctuary in Norwich where he can prance about with other bulls to his heart`s content.

Kudos to Sam Simon not only for coming to the rescue of this noble animal, but for promising to give away his $100 million fortune to PETA.
