Kids send Marcus the lamb to slaughter

• Reuters
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.

Marcus the six-month-old lamb has now been culled, the head teacher of the primary school in Kent confirmed on Monday, after the school's council -- a 14-member group of children aged 6 to 11 -- voted 13-1 to have him killed.

It sounds to me like these kids may be involved in a mind-control experiment.  That kind of heartlessness doesn't seem to be normal behavior, imo.
