Save Lou and Bill
However, there is still at least SOME hope for Bill. As far as I am aware, he is still alive at the moment. Although he is probably grieving for his brother, and may never stop grieving, it would still be terrible if he were to be killed as well.
Petition Background (Preamble):
Although they now have other oxen as well, and an animal sanctuary has agreed to take them, the college are now planning on slaughtering these two oxen.
If this happens, their deaths may involve paralysis by bolt gun or electric tongs followed brutal killings involving cuts to their throats. Since the college plans on serving their meat on the site, they may end up as half-eaten meals thrown away in the college bins.
We do not want these two oxen, who have worked so hard on the college farm and, possibly built great friendships with each other, the students and, possibly, some of the staff, to be slaughtered.
