This Bull Is Just Standing Behind A Gate…5 Seconds In, I Couldn’t Help But Laugh!Ashley Maisano
Who needs hands when you have a long, strong tongue?! This bull, named William, is much smarter than many give him credit for. He is standing behind a gate and studies it for a few seconds. Then he sticks out his tongue and wraps it around the latch, pulling it open and opening the gate. LOL! They say the gate has since been “William-proofed.”
Although this video is hysterical to watch, it’s important to note William’s backstory. William lives at Farm Sanctuary’s Animal Acres in Acton, California. Farm Sanctuary was founded in 1986 to combat the abuses of factory farming and to encourage a new awareness and understanding about farm animals. Farm Sanctuary notes that these animals are their friends, not their food. But life wasn’t always great for William.
Him and another bull there, named Harry, were in a crowded dairy truck with nearly 100 other calves on their way to a factory farm. Through a series of events, these two young bulls were rescued and made their way to wildlife rehabilitators at Valley Wildlife Care in West Hills, CA. The veterinarians didn’t think these calves would survive because they were emaciated, dehydrated and hypothermic. Thankfully after receiving proper care, both young bulls flourished. Then they were brought to Animal Acres where they still live now. Now these bulls will live long, healthy and happy lives! (And can also make us more videos like this that make us laugh!)
Here they are when they first arrived at the sanctuary:
