James Cromwell, Oscar nominated actor, was recently arrested along with several PETA protestors.
James was there on behalf of PETA as he and others interrupted a University of Wisconsin Board of Regents meeting.
They were demanding an end to the cruel and tortuous experiments being performed on cats at UW-Madison.
"The University of Wisconsin may think that grant money matters more than animals' suffering, but the public who unwittingly funds this cruelty demands an end to these hideous experiments. My friends at PETA and I will continue to call on UW-Madison to stop cutting into and killing cats in this useless experiment."
Cats are mutilated and killed in these experiments meant to benefit human hearing.
One specific cat, named Double Trouble, had a stainless steel frame embedding into his skull for experiments before he was deafened with a toxin then eventually killed and decapitated.
They were holding blown-up photos of his abuse, like the one above.
This kind of stuff needs to stop NOW!
Thanks for standing up for the kitties, James!
