Family Dog is Killed By U of Utah

This is so sad!

Animal experimenters at the University of Utah killed a dog named Sunny even though she had a microchip registered to a local rescue group.

Shelter workers described her as "very sweet" and "a little timid," but even though they identified the rescue group Utah Animal Adoption Center (UAAC) on Sunny's microchip, they never bothered to call the organization and instead sold her for $50 to the university.

Officials at the university also knew about Sunny's microchip but instead of making the call the University of Utah used Sunny in an experiment, killed her, and cut out her heart.

PETA is calling on the state to officially revoke the school's permit to purchase animals from shelters and for the shelter to be punished for violating the state law that says shelters must make "a reasonable effort to … find the rightful owner of the animal."
