5 Ways PETA Is Helping Animals in Laboratories This Week
- PETA supporters carried a “casket” overflowing with “dead dogs” to Texas A&M University’s graduation ceremony, slamming the school for breaking its promise to release the survivors of its nightmarish canine muscular dystrophy laboratory.
- Eli Lilly execs are facing PETA protests everywhere they go—most recently at a healthcare conference in Las Vegas, where our supporters crashed a speech to demand that the company stop subjecting small animals to the bogus and cruel forced swim test.
- PETA scientists have coauthored a groundbreaking scientific paper detailing how a novel approach can be used to assess chemicals for their potential to cause cancer—without force-feeding pesticides to frightened animals and then killing them.
- We’re challenging University of Tennessee staff for going back on their word and failing to stop invasive medical training procedures on pigs, including gruesome drills in which students intentionally collapse the animals’ lungs and cut into an artery to induce bleeding.
- After obtaining University of California–Berkeley laboratory records revealing that a monkey died of strangulation, live mice were put in a freezer intended for dead animals, and other horrors, PETA filed a formal complaint with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and is demanding an investigation.
