Actor Joins PETA in Calling for End to Experiments Depicted in Gruesome Photos
Wis. -- Academy Award nominee and longtime PETA activist James Cromwell
was arrested Thursday morning after interrupting a University of Wisconsin (UW)
Board of Regents meeting to demand an end to cruel and deadly brain experiments
on scores of cats at UW-Madison.
Shouting "Shame on UW for mutilating and killing cats!" and holding graphic blown-up photos
showing how UW drilled into, deafened, and
decapitated a cat named Double Trouble, Cromwell
and PETA supporters were surrounded by university police and taken out of the
building. Video of the event will be available shortly.

describing the abuse of nine other cats in the same laboratory where Double

were deafened and forced to work for small bits of food. Double Trouble was
killed and decapitated. Some of the other cats may still be alive in a UW

National Institutes of Health (NIH) have been wasted on this ongoing project,
even though leading clinicians in the field have never cited the published
study as contributing to improving human hearing. More than 200,000 people have
used PETA's website to ask the NIH to cut funding for these experiments.

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.
