Jon Stewart Comes to Runaway Bull’s Rescue
Former Daily Show host Jon Stewart and his wife, Tracey, are giving a runaway bull a new life at Farm Sanctuary. The comedian and his animal activist wife stepped in to help with the bull, who was found on the lawn outside a Queens, New York, school building Friday after he escaped from a nearby holding area for livestock. The black and white Angus was taken into custody by the Animal Care Centers of NYC, which was able to acquire him from his owner, a cattle rancher. The Stewarts later picked him up to bring him to Farm Sanctuary, and video aired on NBC’s Today showed the comedian feeding the bull through a fence. The animal was named Frank Lee for Frank Lee Morris, a prisoner who escaped from Alcatraz in 1962. — Read it at The New York Times
