Wis. -- Less than 24 hours after PETA released documents and disturbing
never-before-seen photos detailing the University of Wisconsin–Madison's
(UW) months-long abusive experiment on an orange tabby cat named Double
Trouble, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the National Institutes
of Health (NIH) have opened an investigation into UW's apparent violations of
federal animal welfare regulations, confirming in a letter sent to PETA on
Thursday that the USDA will "take appropriate enforcement action if
USDA and NIH aren't alone in responding quickly to the released photos: In the
first 48 hours, more than 43,000 people have used PETA's website to contact the
National Institutes of Health (NIH) and demand that the agency cut funding for
UW's crude and deadly project. In addition, more than 10,000 supporters have
used the website of peta2, PETA's youth
division, to call on NIH to stop funding all experiments like the one at
UW. And on PETA's Facebook page, more than 2,700 people have expressed their
opposition to and disgust with UW's cruelty to cats.
look at the records of the agony that UW experimenters put Double Trouble
through—from drilling holes into her skull to keeping her constantly hungry in
order to force her to cooperate—and it's clear why these cruel and pointless
studies must end," says PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo.
"PETA will continue to push for the maximum penalties possible for UW's
flagrant disregard for animal welfare."
