Benjy made headlines around the world this month when an animal rights group in Ireland started a campaign to save the bull from the slaughterhouse. John Kelly, a farmer in County Mayo, Ireland bought the bull for breeding last year but was left disappointed when he realised that Benjy is more interested in other bulls.
Within minutes of arriving at the sanctuary earlier this month, Benjy befriended 1-year-old bullock Alex (above right).
However, the romance is likely to be short-lived as Benjy is due to be castrated as per sanctuary protocols.
The sanctuary wrote on Facebook that although they are not certain that Benjy is gay, "the fact that somebody thought he was has certainly saved his life!"
