College kills sick ox at center of slaughter fight
POULTNEY — A Vermont college Sunday euthanized one of its farm oxen that have been at the center of an uproar over the college’s decision to process the animals into meat.
The 11-year-old ox, named Lou, was put down after a recurring injury to his hind leg continued to deteriorate, Green Mountain College in Poultney said.
Lou and another ox were retired this summer from the college’s working farm. The school planned to turn them into beef products for the college dining hall as it has done with other livestock, a decision that drew fire from animal rights activists who wanted the oxen spared and had found a sanctuary for them.
In a statement, the college said it decided to euthanize Lou after veterinarians agreed his condition would worsen. The college said Lou’s work partner, Bill, would stay at the school farm and receive care consistent with appropriate practices.
Arpaio inmate captured after brief escape
PHOENIX — Authorities on Sunday evening apprehended a man who had escaped from an Arizona jail hours earlier while being held on attempted murder and robbery charges.
Adan Orduno Jr., 26, was captured Sunday evening in Phoenix, said Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Authorities were still investigating how he broke out.
Orduno was being housed in the county jail’s psychiatric unit when he was discovered missing just before 9 a.m., said Officer Christopher Hegstrom, a sheriff’s spokesman who said the escape was the first for the 7-year-old south Phoenix facility, which also houses Sheriff Arpaio’s famous “tent city” lockup.
JetBlue pilot who disrupted flight free to go home
AMARILLO — A JetBlue Airways captain who ran through the cabin of a cross-country flight yelling about religion and terrorists was prohibited Friday from flying or keeping his pilot’s license and now faces what could be the difficult task of finding work after being released from a prison medical facility.
Clayton Osbon was released more than seven months after a March flight from New York to Las Vegas during which, passengers said, the 49-year-old pilot left the cockpit and ran through the cabin yelling about Jesus and al Qaeda. The flight was diverted and safely landed in Amarillo, Texas.
