Locals Stand With PETA in Demanding an End to Painful and Deadly Experiments on Cats and Dogs
For Immediate Release:April 19, 2010 Contact:Justin Goodman 757-622-7382 Salt Lake City -- In recognition of World Week for Animals in Laboratories, members of PETA, the University of Utah's Student Organization for Animal Rights, and the Salt Lake Animal Advocacy Movement will gather to protest the abuse of animals in University of Utah laboratories. The demonstration comes in the wake of a shocking PETA undercover investigation of the university that prompted lawmakers to amend a state law by ending the mandatory sale of dogs and cats at government-run shelters to the university for experiments. The protest also follows the subsequent announcement by the Davis County animal shelter--the biggest seller of shelter animals to the University of Utah--that it would no longer provide animals to the school.
When: Tuesday, April 20 at 2 noon Where: University of Utah, Administration Building, Presidents Circle, Salt Lake CityThousands of animals are still suffering inside University of Utah laboratories. Dogs have their necks cut open and medical devices implanted inside. Cats, monkeys, and rats are forced to endure invasive experiments in which their skulls are cut open and electrodes are inserted into their brains, and mice are given enormous tumors and painful, deadly illnesses. PETA’s complaint to the U.S. Department of Agriculture alleging multiple violation of animal protection laws is still under investigation.
"The University of Utah abuses sensitive, intelligent animals in archaic experiments," says PETA Vice President of Laboratory Investigations Kathy Guillermo. "Students and members of the community are outraged that these animals are poisoned, cut up, and killed in cruel and deadly experiments. It has to stop." For more information, please visit PETA.org.
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.
