Killing Bill and Lou

Two oxen are slated for slaughter at Green Mountain College (VT).
The Oxen, named Bill and Lou, have worked for 11 years on the rural campus. Now Lou is injured and, consistent with college policy, both are scheduled for slaughter to provide hamburger for the student dining hall. This has provoked much discussion, including editorials
from many sources. Many of the students, even vegetarians, support the decision.
