It's time once again for the not-so-coveted Vivisector of the Month award. Of course, all vivisectors deserve the "prize" for their mad science, but we've narrowed the field to two particularly nasty candidates. We're asking you to vote for the person you would most like to see in a stockade getting beaned in the head with fruit.
Mark Lowell is a faculty member at the University of Michigan (UM) who seems to have forgotten that when he went through medical school he swore an oath to do no harm. Lowell directs a Survival Flight course for nurses; in the course, cats and pigs are tormented even though superior human simulators are used to teach the same skills in other courses at UM. Cats have hard tubes repeatedly forced down their windpipes for intubation training, and many of them are killed. Pigs have holes cut into their limbs, throats, and chests and are stabbed with needles in their bones and the tissue surrounding their hearts. PETA, students at UM, the campus newspaper, the student government, and even UM alum Iggy Pop are vigorously urging Lowell to shut down this nasty operation.
In the other corner, weighing in at "cold and callous," is Bradley Greger. This peach of a person is one of the experimenters we've been telling you about at the University of Utah (the U) who buys cats from the North Utah Valley Animal Shelter and subjects them to cruel experiments before killing them. Greger also drills holes into monkeys' and cats' skulls and implants electrodes into their brains. He screws titanium pins into the monkeys' skulls and attaches an aluminum head-restraint device to immobilize the animals in chairs for up to eight hours per day for brain experiments.
You can use our form to e-mail the University of Michigan and the University of Utah and tell them that you support modern, humane science—not cruel animal experiments.
So who will it be: Mark "Lower Than Low" Lowell or Bradley "The Butcher" Greger? Get your moldy oranges ready, aim, and fire.

the photo of this little monkey with members separated in a cold steel chair and without compassion reminds me of a rape by a stalker. You violate the life, joy, serenity and the existence of this little monkey. all this useless for experiments and repeated every day do without any qualms, no positive results, they are even the opposite and are a disaster for human health! You have no empathy, no compassion, no soul and your karma will be so heavy that I hope to be there to see you crumble in repentance, seeking forgiveness that the Creator will not give you, believe me.
Your searches are not relevant to the community, they are useful only for your wallet. While you torture an animal that can not complain to justice, you receive subsidies and that's all that interests you. Commits can you go home, kiss your kids, your wife, and perhaps to caress your dog while your hands are full of blood, screams of pain and despair paid by these poor guinea pigs. There is no difference between you and the torturers of animals, you just hide under your white coat! Besides, I always wonder why you put whites while your blood is red and innocent victims? It is time you catch the flight modernity other personal experiences because you may find yourself behind like those old players who want to continue their careers, they are pathetic but you, well, you are dangerous for animals and society. Change quickly away. thank you and wish you a good redemption before it's too late.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
