Jon Stewart saves bull; there’s ‘ouch!’ ending
Jon Stewart, former host of “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central, saved a bull, named Frank Lee, from being hamburger but the price was castration which means Frank Lee, frankly, will become a steer.
The Angus bull -- dubbed Frank Lee after an Alcatraz prison escapee -- made a run for freedom Friday during transport to a slaughterhouse in Jamaica, New York and ran to the closest pasture.
Frank Lee was subdued and transported to the Animal Care Center in Brooklyn.
Stuart’s wife, Tracey, is an animal rights advocate and best-selling author of a book about living alongside creatures great and small.
Frank, minus his testicles, will live out his life on Bufflehead Farm -- a 12-acre piece of land in Watkins Glen.
