Subject: Kids on UK farm program smarter than the adults in their community

Written By: ChuckyG on 09/14/09 at 9:04 pm

A group of schoolchildren who reared a lamb from birth and named it Marcus has overridden objections by parents and rights activists and voted to send the animal to slaughter.


The decision has provoked fury among animal-loving celebrities, animal and human rights campaigners and the parents of some of the children, and led to threats against Lydd primary school and its teachers, according to a member of staff.

Around 250 children at the school take part in a program designed to teach them about rearing and breeding animals.

Hope for the next generation?  The kids are smart enough not to grow attached to an animal they knew they were going to kill at some point.  Sad to see how many people are so detached from how farm life works that they feel a need to protest this.
