The Bull Who Cried

The Bull Who Cried

 Touching Story by Weekly World News

All creatures deserve compassion.

The Bull Who Cried: Knowing it was about to be slaughtered, a bull in Hong Kong did what many people fail to realize or are skeptic about when it comes to animals – he showed emotion.

As reported by a World News Source”, a group of workers walked a bull to a packaging factory. They were about to slaughter him to make steaks and beef stews. When they were close to the front door of the slaughter house, the sorrowful bull suddenly stopped going forward and knelt down on his two front legs. The bull… was all in tears. How did he know he was going to be killed before he entered the slaughter house?

Mr. Shiu, a butcher recalled, “When I saw this so-called “stupid” animal sobbing and saw in his eyes fear and sorrow, I started trembling.”

“I called the rest over to see. They were just as surprised. We kept pushing the bull forward, but he just didn’t want to move and sat there crying.””

Billy Fong, owner of the packaging factory said, “People thought animals didn’t cry like human beings. However that bull really sobbed like a baby.””

At that time, more than ten men witnessed the scene and they were all touched. Those who were responsible for slaughtering felt even more touched and cried as well. Other workers at the same slaughter house also came to see the crying bull. They were all shocked by this scene. Three of them said they would never forget this crying bull when they slaughtered other animals.

With both man and animal crying, everyone knew that nobody could kill the bull. The problem was, what should they do with him?

In the end, they raised funds to buy this crying bull and sent him to a temple, where the kind monks would take care of him for life.

After the workers had made a decision, a miracle happened. A worker said,

“When we promised this bull that we will not kill him, he started moving and followed us.”

“How did he understand people’s words?”

Mr. Shiu said “ Believe it or not? This is real although it sounds unbelievable.”

No doubt, this bull changed these butchers’ lives. Hopefully this story has in turn changed yours.

  1. Laura, I really love your podcast and blog, but these sorts of stories I just can’t take in anymore. I was vegan for two years and for some reason, the vegan world is really focused upon stories of extreme animal suffering. I worked in an animal hospital for five years and I’d never felt so overwhelmed by animal suffering than I did at a vegan potluck.

    I KNOW about this already. I had to disassociate from the vegan community because I didn’t want to talk about this anymore. I do not / cannot continue to take in these stories. Rescue animals and stories is one thing – but this sort of story is another category I just can’t stomach anymore.

    I know about rabbits and other animals in labs. I know about slaughter and cruelty. I had to skip that podcast with those dogs who were beheaded. These things are traumatizing me! Please stop! I just can’t enjoy your blog anymore because I just don’t know when I’ll scroll down and run into an emotionally triggering story like this, or some horrifying picture.

    I guess you’ll do what you feel is right for your website & podcast, I just wanted to tell you how negatively it’s affecting me, and that I might have to stop listening, which is really sad for me because I look forward to your podcast all week. You’re writing for animal lovers who are all going to be upset by this kind of thing. I think that most of us know about this already, even for the people who haven’t heard this particular story, you’re preaching to the choir.

    I know it’s weird to try and figure out a line. For me, talking to the remaining animal spirits in that old zoo was pretty sad, but I was still interested in what happened, in helping those animals to cross over. It didn’t feel emotionally manipulative.

    I do not want to imply you’re being emotionally manipulative, I know that’s not your intent. Basically, if it’s a story / imagery that would show up on the Peta website, it’s too extreme for me. I hope you’ll take this into consideration, I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels like this.

    Thanks for reading. Kate.

  2. I love this story, thanks so much for posting it Laura. Just confirms what we already know but so many don’t want to believe or accept, that EVERY species feels emotions & has a unique personality, not just dogs & cats. I’m happy this Bull was spared, but billions more are being killed. No animal deserves to be killed for our food, clothes, entertainment, etc. I hope this story helps people make the connection that if you love or care about animals, then you should not be eating any species of them (it’s also better for your health and will save the Planet!).

  3. This story just reiterates that is not just about your pet dog, the bull is exactly the same as a dog. I think people need to be reminded that all animals have souls. I don’t think this story has anything to do with vegans!

  4. I think things like this should be posted. When I read this story I cried.
    And from that moment on I have not eaten meat. If not for this story and
    other stories I have read on line about these poor abused animals,
    I would still be eating meat. As much as it breaks my heart, keep these stories
    coming because people have to be made aware of the way all animals are being treated.
    The abuse that is going on at dairy factory farms is outrageous. I stopped drinking milk
    until I found one without harmones in it..

  5. It is quite touching to read the bull having cried knowing being sent to slaughtering house in Hongkong on May 15, 2012. So we human being should give second thought of opting to food with meat
