More Bad News for Yale

Written by PETA | February 26, 2009

After our recent demonstration in New Haven to let residents know that Yale is spending millions of taxpayer dollars torturing monkeys, the university wasn’t exactly ready to throw open its doors and give guided tours to people who wanted to find out more. Well, Yale’s secretive vivisectors may have been a bit surprised on their drive to work when they saw our massive new billboard near their facilities calling on anyone who witnesses cruelty in the university’s labs to blow the whistle:


Whistleblower billboard


Whistleblowers have been instrumental in revealing neglect, carelessness, and cruelty in laboratories across the nation. This has led to countless victories for animals—so we’re always eager to hear from people with the inside scoop.

Even if you don’t work in a laboratory, you can blow the whistle on animal abusers. Whistleblowers have revealed details of Ringling’s abuse of animals, shed light on beatings of animals on movie sets, and given us behind-the-scenes information on the horse-racing industry. Wherever you see animals abused—whether at a race track, pet shop, circus, carnival, or in your own neighborhood—speak up and let us know about it!

    PETA members disgust me because of their hypocrisy. At one moment, they’ll protest the experimentation of new therapeutics on animals, but when they finally have cancer or some disease, they’ll do anything to have those same therapeutics first tested on animals. Dear PETA members, if you are so against animal experimentation, refuse to take drugs tested on and proven successful in animals and humans. 🙂

    Millions of taxpayer dollars pouring out of the National Institute of Health for useless cruel and redundant experiments on animals. That should go over well in this economay. Yale University come out of the dark ages for God Sakes. You are supposed to be a leader not an oppressor. Shut down those labs and rally Washington for stem cell research.

    This is really important not only encourage and stand behind people but give them a way phone email to do something about animals abused for absurd reasons in private. This is really the key to blowing the whole thing wide open perhaps…

  • Rev. Meg Schramm says:

    Perhaps seeing that billboard will encourage empathetic lab assistants to call the number displayed on the board.

  • Kim says:

    I live just a short drive from new haven I mean like 10 miles. Im so happy to see things like this in an area were I actually live. It is so exciting.

    Yale is supposed to be a progressive and enlightened school. It’s still in the dark ages if it perpetrates atrocities against animals.
