No doubt hoping to avoid the Muslim halal slaughter method of cutting where the bull’s throat would be slit while he is fully conscious, this bull has already seen thousands of his friends put to death while writhing in pain, especially now, in the busy season of Eid-al Adha, the Islamic festival of sacrifice. During Eid, animals are brutally slaughtered not only by trained Islamic butchers, but by anyone who wants to impress his friends and family with his amateur throat-slitting abilities.(See photos below)
The roughly 1,500-pound animal busted out of a farm on Barnes Road in Manorville on Tuesday morning by breaking through a fence, police said. He was scheduled to be slaughtered the next day, Newsday reported.
The bull then made a run for it along the Sunrise Highway, forcing police to shut it down at Exit 58 before reopening the roadway 20 minutes later. The bull has been on the loose since at least 8:20 a.m. on Tuesday, when it was seen trotting down neighborhood streets in Mastic.
A fundraiser to find the bull a forever home once it is caught has already raised over $1,500 online, according to a report.
According to a report, dozens of locals have donated to a fund that has raised more than $1,500 for the animal sanctuary and rescue outfit that has promised to provide a forever home to the bull on the run in the Moriches area.
Lisa Jaeger, a wildlife rehabilitator and founder and CEO of Jaeger’s Run Animal Rescue Inc. in Port Jefferson, started the fund last night on Facebook, following a daylong search for the bull, who escaped a Moriches slaughterhouse on the very day he was set to be sacrificed as part of a religious ceremony. “This young bull ran for his life,” Jaeger said in her post. “Please donate to this animal sanctuary.”
The bull is not far from the stable where I keep my horse. If he comes there, we will hide him in a stall until the Animal Rescue people can pick him up.
Cow in heat brought in to seduce the runaway bull out of hiding. But he is too smart for that and refuses to fall for the trap. I guess she is not as udder-ly irresistible as they hoped.
NY Post Norma Jean, a seductress heifer-in-heat named for screen siren Marilyn Monroe, failed to entice a runaway Long Island bull out from hiding despite her sultry scent and sensuous mooing, her handlers said Thursday.
“She was mooing and out there,” Frank Floridia, president of Strong Island Animal Rescue, told The Post of the bovine temptress. “The scent was there, and despite the amazing efforts of the team, he didn’t show up.”
“What would be the best way to lure a young male out than to bring in a menstruating cow,” Floridia said. But the mission — which lasted about two-and-a-half hours — ended with no bull in sight, he said.
Rescuers will be back out on Thursday, with Norma Jean on hand. They will also scatter grain, considered a “dessert” for the bull — and bring out some pens in hopes of corralling him.
Suffolk County police confirmed Thursday morning that the bull was still on the loose and that the search was turned over to multiple animal rescue groups.
UPDATE: As of Friday afternoon, this brave bull is still on the loose.
