article imageSimpsons co-creator saves 'gay' Irish bull from being slaughtered

By Owen Weldon     Nov 19, 2014 in World
A bull in Ireland who was going to be slaughtered because he might have been gay has been saved by Sam Simon, the co-creator of the 'Simpsons.'
Simon, who vowed to beat cancer last year, and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, an activist group, announced on Tuesday that the bull was saved.
After the bull, named Benjy, failed to impregnate any of the females in his herd on a Country Mayo farm, a local vet questioned his sexuality. The vet said the bull was fertile but he was interested in other bulls. The owner was going to have him slaughtered for meat, but animal rights activists and gay activists started to take notice.
According to Mashable, Benjy was saved following a donation that Simon made. He donated more than $7,000, while others have donated to a Crowdfunder campaign. The bull will be sent to a sanctuary, where he will remain for the rest of his life.
Simon said that all animals have a dire destiny in the meat trade. He continued to say that it would have been a double tragedy if the bull was killed for being gay.
Simon heard about the bull from PETA, and he is known for his interest in animal rights. He also founded the Sam Simon Foundation, which is an organization that rescues and retrains stray dogs.
