    I am sad, mad, and shocked at Green Mountain College’s decision to slaughter Bill and Lou. Then serving them in the dining hall is just sickening.

    Bill and Lou stay in the field behind my house. I know first-hand how hard these two beautiful oxen have had to work on the GMC farm. (I have not always liked it but have witnessed it.) They deserve to live and have earned it, that’s for sure. They deserve many years just relaxing.

    I am hoping GMC does the right thing and lets them go to VINE Sanctuary to live out the rest of their lives. GMC must realize by now how many people, including myself, really care about these two lives. Should you not change your minds, shame on you all.
