College Station, Texas – Please see the following statement from PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo regarding the news that a Texas A&M University equine veterinarian was indicted on a cruelty-to-animals charge:
Something is rotten at Texas A&M University’s veterinary school. PETA exposed Texas A&M’s canine muscular dystrophy experiments, and the vet school refuses to release nine perfectly healthy dogs it no longer uses, even though PETA has offered to take them all and place them in loving homes. Now, one of the school’s veterinarians has been indicted for electroshocking a horse. President M. Katherine Banks should clean house, release the dogs, and fire those responsible for imprisoning and abusing animals.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to experiment on”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information on PETA’s newsgathering and reporting, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
