Former Daily Show host Jon Stewart seems to have found a gentle and good way to spend his time after quitting the show. Him and his wife Tracey rescued a hurt runaway bull in New York City on Friday, April 1.
Farm Sanctuary posted on Facebook , a video of Jon feeding the bull, who ditched out of a truck from a slaughterhouse in Jamaica, New York to the campus of York College, reported Ace Showbiz.
“Everyone likes hay,” Jon said in the video.
Farm Sanctuary wrote, “Breaking News: We are happy to report that the bull who was on the run earlier today in Queens is safe and on his way to Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, NY.
“Jon and Tracey Stewart picked up the individual whom we are calling Frank this afternoon from Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC). Special thanks to our colleague Mike Stura of Skylands Animal Sanctuary And Rescue who drove out to assist with the transport. More info to come.”
The runaway bull was transported to the Animal Care Center in Brooklyn before Jon brought it to his animal sanctuary.
Sylvia Moskovitz with the Watkins Glen shelter in New York told the site that members of Farm Sanctuary negotiated with the organization a voluntary release for the bull.
After spending the weekend at the Stewart family farm, the bull will be transported to Cornell University Hospital for Animals and becomes a steer.
