Wild Bull on the Loose!

I would think that some animal rescue people have the bull and are waiting to get him to the sanctuary. No one group is more intense (in a good way) then animal rights people. They were all over this.

I read he will be headed to a sanctuary in NJ if found. Seems only fair.

Yes I read that too, and I'm sure they are all over it. But according to News12 he has not yet been captured.

I meant that I don’t think they’d disclose they had him until he was safely at the sanctuary.

I would hope they would tell the public right away so they wouldn’t be worried anymore.

Any updates? Did they find him?

They are now trying to entice him with a menstruating cow named Norma Jean...



I read about Norma Jean Chat Icon. I thought female animals needed to be in heat to be attractive to males, no?[/QUOTE

Hopefully she gave her consent ]

MASTIC, NY — Wednesday marked eight days since the Mastic bull dubbed "Barney" escaped from slaughter, and Long Island animal advocates hope the wayward bovine will be wrangled soon.

Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Chief Roy Gross said Suffolk police reached out to him to coordinate with rescue groups to capture the bull, and he reached out to Mike Stura, who owns the 232-acre Skylands Animal Sanctuary and Rescue in New Jersey and plans to take Barney.

Gross said Stura has spent "countless" hours trying to wrangle the bull.
...
As for Stura, there are no plans to give up on the rescue any time soon, but he noted rescues can go longer than expected. He has rescued other bovines, like Frieda and Al, which were loose for about six months, as well as cows named Georgia and Princess, which were loose for two and eight months, respectively, he said.

"It often goes longer," he said.

In the meantime, Barney is capable of surviving by living off the grass and drinking water from a stream, and could be terrified and lonely due to the lack of company of other cows and bulls.

Re: Wild Bull on the Loose!

They still haven't caught him!

https://patch.com/new-york/shirley-mastic/henri-creeps-long-island-barney-bull-still-out-there?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=web&utm_campaign=share&fbclid=IwAR24K4yVsbSayQRklAHcXFROYe4Q_gliIyUsbtNRGTD36lPXTKGEb6kdLhc

NY — It's one month in now and Barney, the bull that ran through a neighborhood in Mastic after striking a blow for freedom from a local slaughterhouse, is still on the lam as Henri is expected to make landfall as a hurricane on Sunday morning.

It's a concern for some animal advocates who have been working with local authorities and the owner of the farm where Barney escaped to lure him to a corral so that he can be transported to a sanctuary in New Jersey.

"I certainly don't feel good about the situation," said John DiLeonardo, who works with Long Island Orchestrating for Nature.

Barney is still believed to be in the area near where he first escaped from and there is plenty of flora for him to feed on, as well as a nearby water source. Rescuers have basically relegated their efforts to a waiting game because the bull does not seem to be budging from his hiding place.

Someone had to have rescued this guy. There is no way he is roaming free and nobody has seen him. How can that be?

I read somewhere (can't find it now) that he was on someone's property (farm or something) for a while and the rescue group and property owners have been working together to actually catch him. And they were providing food for him. It sounds like they've known where he was for a while and were finally able to lure him in.
