Brave High-Schooler Saves a Chicken and Educates Thousands of People

A very courageous 16 year-old girl named Whitney Hillman snuck out of her class with a chicken tucked under her arm in order to save his/her life since the students were required to slaughter the chickens as a part of an Animal Science and Food Production class. She shares that before this incident she had never connected what happens to animals to the food on her plate, but after she saved Chicklett she couldn't eat chicken again. It is important to note that permission slips are widely used by this school for everything from field trips to R-rated movies. But when it came to slaughtering chickens, parents were left uninformed.

Children should be encouraged to show compassion toward all creatures, but sadly in many schools around the country they are taught to become insensitive toward the pain and suffering of God's animals. Whitney not only saved the chicken's life but taught a life lesson to thousands of people.
