School Station, Texas – As attendees arrive at Reed Enviornment for Texas A&M College’s commencement ceremony on Saturday, PETA supporters posing as pallbearers will carry a “casket” overflowing with “lifeless canine”—a somber scene shaming the college for failing to honor its pledge to place wholesome canine utilized in its infamous canine muscular dystrophy (MD) laboratory up for adoption. The laboratory’s lead experimenter, Peter Nghiem, backpedaled and despatched 9 wholesome canine to Texas A&M’s veterinary college laboratory as a substitute.

“Canines suffered and died for years inside Texas A&M’s grotesque canine muscular dystrophy laboratory, and the very least the college can do is to offer these 9 wholesome canine a brand new lease on life,” says PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo. “PETA will take all of them, no questions requested, and discover them the loving houses they want and deserve.”
PETA has launched video footage from contained in the MD laboratory revealing grim situations for the canine, who had been caged in barren metallic cells. In 2019, underneath strain from PETA supporters, physicians, and folks with muscular dystrophy, Texas A&M stopped breeding the canine to develop the illness. Greater than 50 have been launched for adoption.
PETA—whose motto reads, partially, that “animals should not ours to experiment on”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
