In Poultney, the oxen team of Bill and Lou are still alive.
Green Mountain College was set to send the aging pair to slaughter by the end of this month -- setting off an international petition drive to save the oxen. But as of this morning the pair were still in their pasture.
The college Wednesday confirmed that the oxen will not be spared but that the date to send them for slaughter has been pushed back. Officials would not say why the date has changed.
