Antioch College, located in Yellow Springs, Ohio, USA, recently has changed its curriculum and now operates a farm with numerous animals, including nine young lambs.  Currently the college is using the lambs as “living lawnmowers” in a field of solar panels, but later this summer the college will kill the lambs and feed them to students. The use and impending death of the lambs is hailed by the college as a lesson in the production of “real” food. 

But the lambs are not carrots and turnips.  Allowed to live their full lives these lambs can live 15 years, but Antioch College plans to kill them while they are very young. Rather than teaching students to respect life and to produce sustainable plant-based food, students are being taught that living beings are disposable and replaceable. Next year, they plan to do this all again with another group of innocent lambs.

By signing this petition, you are calling on Antioch College to release these lambs to area sanctuaries, where they can be spared the horrors of the slaughterhouse and where they can live out their natural lives in peace.  You also are calling on Antioch College to focus on educating students in the production of plant-based food and to stop the use and oppression of any animals on the Antioch farm.
