A bull in Ireland is facing slaughter the prospect at the abattoir because he only has eyes for his male counterparts.
Benjy, a pedigree Charolais bull, who belongs to a farm in County Mayo, was bought to breed with fertile cows.
However, when they were later examined, it was revealed that none of the animals had been impregnated.
It had been initially thought that this was due to Benjy suffering performance anxiety, after having to deal with the pressure of performing in public.
After his sexual habits were consequently monitored, it became apparent that he was more inclined to the affections of other bulls.
The unnamed farmer who owns Benjy told the Irish Daily Mail that while he had accepted Benjy’s sexuality, he was now at threat of being slaughtered.
He added: ‘The bull is now too old to castrate and turn into a bullock so I will keep him for the factory.’
‘At first, I didn’t take seriously that the bull could be gay, but after seeking advice I know this can happen’.
A new addition to the farm has since been bought by the farmer, and a number of cows are now believed to be pregnant, although Benjy’s fate still hangs in the balance.
