Group Urges School to Modernize Classrooms With Humane Non-Animal Teaching Tools Used at CU-Denver
Colo. -- Following months of attempts to open dialogue with faculty members at
the University of Colorado‒Boulder (CU-Boulder)
about cruel and deadly classroom experiments on rats and frogs, PETA has filed
a formal complaint with the university's animal experimentation oversight
committee calling for an end to the archaic practice of decapitating, cutting
up, and killing animals when more effective
modern methods are available.
to documents obtained by PETA through a Colorado Open Records Act request,
students in CU-Boulder's biology classes cut
off frogs' heads and remove the animals' muscles and nerves. In psychology
experiments, students force rats to swim in water mazes to the point of
exhaustion and despair. In other experiments, live rats have their hearts
removed so that students can apply various drugs, and students place fish in
tanks and then add "intruder" fish and watch them fight.
CU-Boulder hurts animals even though modern non-animal
teaching methods—such as interactive computer simulations—have been shown to
teach better than cruel animal laboratories and are used instead at many
other schools. CU-Denver offers similar
courses and has confirmed that it does not use any live animals in classroom
students torment and kill animals for an ‘A’ is barbaric and doesn't make them
better scientists," says PETA Senior Vice President of Laboratory
Investigations Kathy Guillermo. "CU-Boulder's
students can and should learn without killing by using the same superior,
humane non-animal methods that schools like CU-Denver
are already using instead of deadly animal labs."
