5 Ways PETA Is Helping Animals in Laboratories This Week

  1. PETA placed a thought-provoking TV spot on Phoenix stations, warning residents that the University of Washington’s Arizona monkey-breeding compound has violated animal health and import regulations while operating without state oversight and could spark the spread of deadly diseases to nearby wildlife, companion animal, and human populations.
  2. We’re slamming the careless and cruel primate transport industry with an eye-catching new billboard along the Pennsylvania highway that was the site of the now-infamous crash of a truck carrying monkeys to laboratories.
  3. As a PETA supporter confronted the CEO of Eli Lilly over the company’s failure to ban the bogus and terrifying forced swim test, she captured on camera his false and misleading statements. Now, PETA is publicizing the damning video along with the truth about why so many pharmaceutical giants are shunning this test in favor of better research.
  4. Since the president of the University of Massachusetts recently spoke about the importance of “open debate” and “the exploration of difficult topics,” PETA neuroscientist Dr. Katherine Roe has challenged him to a debate about the school’s absurd menopause experiments on marmosets—who don’t even naturally experience menopause.
  5. Members of Students Opposing Speciesism donned monkey masks for a powerful protest calling out the deaths of dozens of animals at the hands of University of California–Davis experimenters.
