An Irish bull is facing the grim prospect oto be beheaded at theabattoir, because he only has eyes for his male counterparts.
Benjy,who belongs to the Charolais pedigree 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 having sex in public.
After his sexual habits were consequently monitored, it became apparent that he was more interested in ‘getting it on’ with the rugged bulls.
The unnamed farmer who owns Benjy told the Irish Daily Mail that while he had accepted Benjyâ€™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 didnâ€™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 Benjyâ€™s fate still hangs in the balance.MYNEWSHUB
