JOHNSTON, R.I. —

An online petition has been started, asking that a steer that escaped Thursday be sent to a sanctuary instead of a slaughterhouse, if found. 

The steer, which weighs about 1,500 pounds, has been on the loose since at least Thursday when it escaped a farmer who had brought the animal to a meat processing facility in Johnston, Rhode Island, said Police Chief Joseph Razza.

Victoria Ferruccio-Flores, who started the petition, said “he’s earned the right to live out the rest of his days in peace, at a Sanctuary.” 

“This guy wants to live so badly,” she said. “Anyone who tries as hard as he did deserves to enjoy the good life at a Sanctuary!”

By 2 p.m. Saturday, the petition had garnered about 2,500 signatures on Change.org.
