Save Terrified Bull From Being Euthanized

Target: Greenland Grove, United Kingdom Officials

Goal: To save a bull who is too afraid for a vet checkup from euthanasia

Currently, there is a bull in the United Kingdom who is in jeopardy of facing euthanasia. This bull is a resident of the Greenland Grove Animal Sanctuary. He has done absolutely nothing wrong but his life is still in danger. Action must be taken in order to save this bull from a wrongful death.

Clarence the bull will potentially face euthanasia because he is too afraid to receive a medical examination from veterinarians. This examination tests for bovine tuberculosis and is required for all bovine creatures even if they are not used for farming purposes. Unfortunately, Clarence is so terrified of veterinarians that he won’t let a veterinarian come close enough to perform the medical examination on him. Ultimately, Clarence will be put down if he can’t be tested for bovine tuberculosis.

The owner of the Greenland Grove Animal Sanctuary, Carol Jacobs, is doing everything in her power to prevent Clarence from being euthanized. She has two options to save Clarence: she can tranquilize him so vets may approach him or she can use a cattle crush to immobilize him for a short period of time. Although she has been given these options, she must find the means to fund these methods herself. Being an owner of an animal sanctuary that depends on donations and fundraisers, this is an extremely difficult task to accomplish.

Time is running out for Clarence. Ms. Jacobs has been sent a letter by officials indicating their intentions to come and shoot Clarence; officials have a zero-tolerance policy against bovine animals who fail to take the bovine tuberculosis test. Ms. Jacobs has been given four weeks to prevent Clarence’s death. Sign the petition below to urge Greenland Grove officials to either give Ms. Jacobs more time to find a solution or to help provide Ms. Jacobs with a means to subduing Clarence long enough to receive the necessary medical examination.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Greenland Grove Officials,

It has come to my attention that a bull residing in the Greenland Grove Animal Sanctuary is in danger of euthanasia. Clarence, the bull in question, has done nothing wrong and does not deserve to die just because he is afraid of receiving a medical examination. I understand that this test is required for all bovine animals because it tests for bovine tuberculosis, but I feel that euthanizing Clarence is extreme.

The owner of the animal sanctuary, Carol Jacobs, has been given two options to subdue Clarence long enough in order to receive the medical examination. Unfortunately, both of these methods are expensive. Ms. Jacobs is doing everything in her power to save Clarence but she is having a difficult time finding the funds to either tranquilize or immobilize Clarence; the sanctuary depends on donations and fundraising for whatever funds it receives.

I am urging you to give Ms. Jacobs more time to save Clarence and if that is not possible, I am urging you to help Ms. Jacobs to obtain the funds or the equipment necessary to subdue Clarence.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Kill, kill, kill, that’s all these people know how to do – don’t even TRY to find another way to do the test – let’s give the sanctuary the LEAST amount of time to resolve the situation – get everybody involved nervous and scared – because they want you to know they are in control – they can do anything they want -and if they can’t get their way quick enough to suit them – they will come and kill your animal – it doesn’t matter that in time, maybe money could be raised to solve the situation – to save this harmless bull’s life – but no, they would just rather kill it – that’s what they’re best at! It’s really too bad that they can’t WORK WITH THE SANCTUARY TO FIND A SOLUTION INSTEAD OF WORKING AGAINST THEM!

  2. please,we will not hear that the bull have been killed,
    because,he was afraid to medicated.
    that is the most horrible and cruel thing,i had ever heared of.

    Incredible information; The traffic with animals is on third place in France.

    I think is the same in a lot of countries. So our attitude against is very important. It developed invisibly but in front of our eyes and we all didn’t realise what happened, but now everything is visible enough !!!

    “Le trafic d’animaux est, en France, le 3° trafic après la drogue et les armes. Faute d’avoir été élevés et soignés dans de bonnes conditions, les animaux victimes de ce trafic, quand ils ne meurent pas de maltraitance, souffrent de traumatismes psychologiques et physiques irréversibles.”
