Group Calls On Board to End Cruel Experiments Depicted in Gruesome Photos—Federal Agencies Have Opened Investigations
Wis. -- Double Trouble was not the only cat who endured cruel experiments at the
University of Wisconsin–Madison. PETA has released internal UW records that
illustrate disturbing evidence of widespread and ongoing abuse of other cats in
the same laboratory, including serious bacterial infections from the traumatic
head and eye wounds inflicted on them. Cats named Broc, Cali, Daisy, Mama Grey,
Marble, Patches, Slinky, Tiger, and Timmy suffered from illness, malnutrition,
and infection—some for several years. Some of these cats have been killed,
whereas others may still be alive.
a letter sent today to the University Of Wisconsin System Board Of Regents,
PETA asks for the immediate end of the deadly and wasteful experiment.
own records detail the years-long pain and suffering of cats during experiments
in which the animals had their heads and ears cut open and were intentionally

these cruel experiments before the university harms any more cats and tarnishes
its image further."

disturbing never-before-seen photos that detail the abuse of an

million in taxpayer money has been wasted on this cruel and useless project.
has submitted complaints about the new allegations to both the National Institutes
of Health (NIH), which funded the experiments, and the U.S. Department of
Agriculture. Both agencies have notified PETA that they have opened
investigations. Through PETA's website, more than 170,000 people have asked the
NIH to cut funding for these experiments.

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.
