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.”
