This is important because animals are being tortured for no other reason than to keep up a productive publication record that ensures the schools constant funding. They justified the use of thirty cats in order to maintain this funding. One such animal was subject to horrific surgeries, starvation, and later decapitation so that the experimenters could cut apart her brain. This is just one example of the tortures they undergo. These studies much more often than not are useless. Please sign this petition to cut funding and stop the use of innocent animals for pointless experimentation.
