Baltimore – Please see PETA Vice President Shalin Gala’s statement regarding the news that State’s Attorney for Baltimore City Marilyn Mosby is facing a federal indictment:
In the wake of federal charges brought against State’s Attorney for Baltimore City Marilyn Mosby—to whom PETA sent a complaint last month urging an investigation and prosecution of the man responsible for invasive brain experiments conducted on captive barn owls at Johns Hopkins University—PETA is appealing to Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan to intervene and demand justice for owls subjected to these appallingly crude, worthless, and apparently illegal experiments that nearly half a million people have spoken out against. The experiments appear to violate Maryland’s cruelty-to-animals law and were conducted without the proper state permits.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to experiment on”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org.
