The story of Bill and Lou has now gone global; I myself have picked it up in Europe and know that it is already in Australia, Asia and the rest of Europe. If it was the purpose of Green Mountain College to court bad publicity then they have succeeded in heir mission. If on the other hand they want to take the eyes of the world off themselves and stop the mounting bad publicity towards Green Mountain College then they should reprieve Bill and Lou and let them retire to a sanctuary at no further cost to themselves.

If the management doubt how bad publicity over animals can affect them then I suggest that they take a look at the case of Lenox the so called pitt bull type dog who was put to sleep against massive global opposition by Belfast City Council Northern Ireland. Belfast is still suffering the economic effects nearly 6 months after his death. Belfast made Lenox into a martyr; you will do the same for Bill and Lou if you insist on this ill-advised route that you are currently on.

The answer is simple turn Bill and Lou over to a sanctuary and all the nastiness leaves with them.

I hope that you have the foresight to change our mind if not then maybe you should consider if Green Mountain College if a fit establishment to educate and stimulate academic thinking.
