Long Island, N.Y. – PETA is celebrating because the bull who was on the run for months on Long Island in New York found freedom, something he fought hard to gain and keep, and will now live out his life at the spacious Skylands Animal Sanctuary & Rescue instead of meeting the slaughterhouse knife. Below, please find a statement from PETA President Ingrid Newkirk:

After an astounding two months on the run, this bull’s escape ended happily, unlike the lives of those who end up on the dinner table. PETA urges everyone who rooted for this bull to help save another by going vegan.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. The group, along with Long Island Orchestrating for Nature (LION), is also soon running a billboard in the area proclaiming, “Help Others Escape the Slaughterhouse: Go Vegan.”

For more information, please visit or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
