Dallas – What: As prospective students and their parents arrive for an information session at Texas A&M University’s (TAMU) Prospective Student Center in Arlington today, PETA supporters will urge them to look elsewhere for their education until TAMU shuts down its canine muscular dystrophy laboratory.
When: Today, October 10, 6:30–7:30 p.m.
Where: Texas A&M University’s Prospective Student Center, 3900 Arlington Highlands Blvd., Arlington
PETA has released eyewitness video footage of dogs inside TAMU’s labs who have been deliberately bred to develop a crippling and painful form of canine muscular dystrophy that leaves them struggling to walk, swallow, and even breathe.
“Four decades of dogs’ suffering haven’t led to a single cure or treatment that reverses muscular dystrophy symptoms in human patients,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is urging prospective students to stay away from TAMU and its cruel dog laboratory.”
