Two oxen are about to be slaughtered at a college in Vermont. According to HLN affiliate WCAX: "Because it is an educational, sustainable farm, we think we've got to help students understand how to make farms work ecologically, socially and economically," said Bill Throop, the provost at Green Mountain College. The consensus: to slaughter Bill and Lou for meat. This would save the school from purchasing meat from a factory for at least a month.
But now there is a petition signed by more than 25,000 people trying to save the two oxen, Bill and Lou from slaughter.
