All I hear about concerning Green Mountain College is that they are going to slaughter two beautiful old oxens who have loyally worked for them for 11 years. There is such an outcry about this that I am suprised they want such bad damaging advertising. I just dont know how they can do this to two innocent animals who the community clearly relate to and love. It would be clever advertising for the college to change it's mind and to let the animals go to the sactuary (who have promised them a home)to live out their days in peace and tranquility after a hard working life for the college. Such cruelty...I am blown away and disgusted.
