Boston – Below, please find a statement from PETA President Ingrid Newkirk about the bull who escaped from the Flame Livestock Market twice in two days:
Like all of us, this bull values his own life, and anyone who makes two bids for freedom in as many days deserves a break. PETA is calling on the owners to allow this spirited animal to live out his days in peace—and Farm Sanctuary and Skylands Animal Sanctuary & Rescue are ready to take him in. No animal should be killed and hacked apart for the fleeting taste of brisket or burgers, and anyone who cares about this bull can help more than 100 animals like him every year simply by going vegan.
PETA’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat.”
