Lab Horrors at Johns Hopkins: NIH Flubs Investigation; PETA Urges Action
PETA Blog

Universities across the country are getting away with murder, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is their accomplice. NIH is charged with policing the animal experimentation facilities that it funds with nearly $20 billion in taxpayer money each year. But it has failed to adequately address a string of alarming welfare violations at Johns Hopkins University, including the recent deaths of a dog and a rabbit, as well as repeated incidents of noncompliance at various other NIH-funded institutions. So PETA is going over the agency’s head and calling on the Office of Inspector General at ..read more

Horse Dies on Track at Ocala Breeders’ Sales Auction—PETA Investigator Assaulted, Robbed by Staff for Filming
PETA Blog

4d ago
Today, at an under tack show held by Ocala Breeders’ Sales (OBS) in Ocala, Florida, a reckless sprint event turned deadly: A horse was killed by track staff after a collision, and a jockey lay motionless on the ground. The event livestream, now deleted from the OBS webpage, shows the young horse colliding at high speed with a track barrier. The collision flings the jockey into the railing, and from there, he tumbles to the ground. The horse then collapses just past his motionless body. (This danger is why some jockeys refer to these events as “suicide shows.”) Footage then shows track officia ..read more

Why Animal Dissection Is So Last Century: Alicia Silverstone and Bear Speak Out
PETA Blog
by Madison VonSosen
5d ago
Nearly 30 years after actor and PETA honorary board member Alicia Silverstone first teamed up with us encouraging students to “cut out” dissection, she’s back—joined by her son Bear—for a new anti-dissection campaign. Their mission: to give students and parents the lowdown on why animal dissection is, like, totally uncool—and downright cruel! In the U.S., an estimated 10 million animals, including frogs, cats, and fetal pigs, are killed and dissected every year. They’re often obtained from facilities that breed animals solely for dissection or tear them away from their homes in nature, just s ..read more

NIMH Funnels Millions of Tax Dollars Into Archaic Animal ‘Fight Clubs’
PETA Blog
by Amanda Hays
6d ago
Small animals are fighting for their lives in experiments bankrolled by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). Experimenters lock mice, rats, hamsters, and others in cages so that one will be beaten up by the other in gruesome gladiator-style tests. Known as “social defeat” experiments, these tests haven’t produced a single treatment for humans, despite having received nearly $15 million in taxpayer funds. Inside Tax-Funded ‘Fight Clubs’ In social defeat tests, two animals—one who’s small and docile and another who’s bigger and more aggressive—are locked in a cage together. Experimen ..read more

Attention, U.S. Navy: Stop Conducting Cruel Decompression Tests on Animals
PETA Blog

6d ago
Are you aware of the disturbing history of U.S. Navy–funded, fatal decompression tests on animals? PETA has received damning new documentation of animal suffering that has taken place during these vile experiments funded by the military branch. In letters sent on April 9, PETA and more than 100 U.S. Navy veterans urged Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III and Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro to end the Navy’s cruel and irrelevant decompression sickness and oxygen toxicity experiments on pigs and other species. This doomed animal in a hyperbaric chamber is one of the countless rats use ..read more

To memorialize the more than 25,000 young salmon who were killed when a tanker truck overturned near Lookingglass Creek on March 29, PETA plans to place a sky-high message near the site reminding everyone that the crash victims were thinking, feeling individuals who didn’t want to die. “The fish who were killed in this crash felt the same terror and agony that any dog, cat, or human would feel if they were suffocated or crushed to death,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA urges everyone to have empathy for salmon and other fish and to go vegan.” Fish feel pain, have long ..read more

PETA to Gov. Holcomb: Dogs and Cats Trapped Inside Local ‘Blood Prison’ Need Your Intervention
PETA Blog
by Brianna Nolan

Today, PETA fired off an urgent appeal to Gov. Eric Holcomb, calling on him to expedite an investigation into and push for cruelty charges against The Veterinarians’ Blood Bank (TVBB) after local authorities failed to take meaningful enforcement action for nearly three months following a PETA undercover video that revealed that more than 900 dogs and cats were perpetually confined to barren kennels and severely crowded pens and had their blood taken every three weeks—even as they suffered from infections and cancer. The appeal comes just after PETA’s findings prompted BluePearl Pet Hospital an ..read more
