Attendees at the 2011 Wisconsin State Fair had a meet-and-greet with Braveheart the dog (who would, no doubt, have preferred a meat-and-greet). Rescued from a Dumpster, Braveheart was taken to the UW’s School of Veterinary Medicine and nursed back to health from near death. He led a parade as part of UW–Madison Day at the State Fair, now an annual tradition in which the university offers science exhibitions, health and wellness information, games, and a pep rally. This year’s UW-Madison day is scheduled for August 8.
