Documentary on One: Benjy the Little Gay Bull

In 2014, the story of a little bull who lived in county Mayo made the Nine O’Clock News. Benjy the Bull’s owner had bought him for breeding purposes but when it emerged that Benjy preferred male animals to cows, the farmer found himself in trouble. And Benjy was about to be in even bigger trouble –the slaughterhouse was calling - until his story went viral. Five years later and little has been heard of Benjy's fate. The Documentary on One sets out to find out what happened to Benjy the gay bull and see if the celebrity Charolais is still alive.
