This is a story about nine baby lambs. But it’s also a story about a death threat, a million dollars, a tragic car accident, and organic mint jelly. Let’s start from the beginning. The nine lambs arrived at Antioch College, a private liberal arts school in Ohio, last spring as part of a “living laboratory” and sustainability program on the Antioch College Farm. Ultimately, they were destined to feed students in the nearby dining hall. But as they grazed in their solar panel-adorned meadow and matured into sheep, they also drew the fevered attention of animal rights activists who hoped to save them from slaughter. On Thursday, school officials told The Daily Beast that they would let go of the sheep for $1 million—but that they would use the money to buy more lambs to butcher for next year’s living laboratory. (For reference, a lamb costs between $50 and $250 to purchase, depending on age and location, and then about $20 per month to sustain … [Read more...] about Antioch College Says You Can Save Its Condemned Sheep for $1 Million—but It’ll Just Buy More for Slaughter

When nine sheep disappeared from their pasture in Yellow Springs, Ohio, last month, there were no volunteer-organized search parties. No flashlights waving about in the darkness, no ears cocked to hear a distant bleat, no portraits on milk cartons. The months-long battle between the impassioned activists who hoped to save the animals, and Antioch College—who planned to slaughter them—will end on Saturday with a three-hour vigil in honor of the lambs. Because the animals are dead. We think. It all began last spring when the then-baby lambs were let loose in their solar-panel-adorned meadow on the campus of the private liberal arts school. The lambs were part of a “living laboratory” and sustainability program on the Antioch College Farm, and the school said that—once they matured into sheep—they would feed students in the nearby dining hall. Over the next several months, fevered activists led by Dr. David Nibert, a neighbor of the college and a … [Read more...] about Nine Lambs at Center of Antioch College Animal-Rights Fight Are Missing. No One Will Say Where They Are.
Like any good story, this one begins on an early spring day in a peaceful meadow full of fruit, vegetables—and most importantly, nine baby lambs. Dr. David Nibert, a sociology professor at Wittenberg University, stumbled upon the lambs in May, while strolling near the campus of Antioch College, a private liberal arts school in the western Ohio town of Yellow Springs. “You know what it’s like when you see a puppy who’s lost, or a baby kitten? Who knows what happened to them, and they’re without their mothers,” said Nibert. “I just sat down and spent some time with them—these gentle, innocent animals.” Then, to his horror, Nibert discovered that his new friends were destined for the slaughterhouse. And so, an idea was born. “I thought: ‘I need to become an advocate for these lambs,’” he told The Daily Beast on Friday. Nibert, who lives across the street from Antioch’s president, reached out to try … [Read more...] about Vegan Professor at War With College to Save 9 Baby Lambs From Slaughter
