Dog-Experiment Protesters Arrested on Belk Bowl Field
Charlotte, N.C. — Moments after Texas A&M University (TAMU) scored its first touchdown against Wake Forest University at the Belk Bowl today, three PETA supporters wearing sweatshirts and brandishing signs proclaiming, “TAMU: Stop Cruel Dog Tests,” rushed onto the field.
The trio sat on the field to protest TAMU for experimenting on golden retrievers and breeding them to develop a form of muscular dystrophy (MD).
After several minutes, police escorted the protesters out of the stadium.
“For decades, generations of dogs have suffered and died in gruesome experiments that haven’t led to a cure for muscular dystrophy in humans,” says PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo. PETA says they are calling on Texas A&M to shut down this “cruel laboratory” and to “release all surviving dogs for adoption into loving homes.”
