URGENT: Save Bill and Lou!

This achievement is no longer active. Please check out the Take Action page for more activities to help animals.

Bill and Lou are two oxen who have been used by Green Mountain College in Vermont for 10 years. These cuties are so loved by students that they are even featured on the school’s Facebook page. But the future looks grim for Bill and Lou, as the school is currently planning on sending the animals to slaughter because they are old and ailing—and then serving their meat at the school!

VINE Sanctuary—an animal refuge in Vermont—has offered to arrange transport and veterinary care for both Lou and Bill as well as a permanent home where they can roam and live out the rest of their lives in peace, but so far the school has refused to let the sanctuary save them.

Bill and Lou will be killed if we don’t speak up NOW. Send a polite letter to officials at Green Mountain College and ask them to do the right thing and let VINE save Bill and Lou from death at a slaughterhouse.

    Please do not send them off to slaughter. They deserve a long life finishing in a nice grassy field!!

    Don’t murder these oxen. They deserve to live and blossom. They might be old, but they are still a part of animal society and they deserve to be. Don’t make these innocent animals go to the slaughterhouse.

    Do we murder older people when they can no longer serve society? This is cruel and disgustiing. Let the animals live out the rest of there lives.

    I have so much passion for these cows. I’ve posted this on my class’s blog and sent it to multiple friends and family members. I encourage everyone do the same. I’ve gotten at least 50 non-peta members to email the school.

    It’s not right let them live out the rest of their lives at the VINE sanctuary!

    if people want a corporate life so bad, they should start supporting compassion, recycling, green products, and try vegan cruelty free. they should start considering a less disposable vegan world also. ANIMAL RIGHTS is not just for sensitive pro-lifers!

    this isn’t right, why choose to take their lives when there’s an opportunity for them to be saved and live out the rest of their lives in a sanctuary? Cows don’t get to die of old age anymore because we rob them of it in slaughterhouses for meat. Please please please do the right thing, and let them live!!

    What’s next? Sending elderly people to be killed when they no longer serve a purpose or our interests? I think this is disgusting. Leave them be, or send them to an animal sanctuary where they can die of old age or what natural causes may be. How can you eat something you’ve had as a companion for so long. Sick.

    They say that they love animals but all this time they were lying to us and the people cannot make sense of this , that’s horrible and we cannot let this happen , so we have to help them with everything we have .. killing the animals is not a job , it’s a crime against life

    They put in our local paper that they are uncomfortable with the thought of sending Bill and Lou to the sanctuary because it’s unfamiliar to them and it will make them upset, so a better choice is to kill them… That makes no sense at all!

      Did they really say that? That’s so stupid. They think the cows are like retarded or something. But they aren’t. If they end up being sent to the sanctuary I think they are going to love it there!

      I know right, Susy? I don’t think they would feel any more comfortable at the slaughterhouse! I hope they do get saved!
