University of Utah, has recently been cited for nine violations of federal animal protection laws: Causing a kitten to die from dehydration. Keeping calves restrained for days at a time without the ability to properly stand up or walk. Failing to provide adequate pain relief to a monkey after surgery. Failing to properly treat injuries in pigs. Allowing extreme crowding in guinea pig cages. Socially isolating a monkey without approval and failing to provide him with proper environmental enrichment. Performing surgery on a rabbit's eyes without proper approval. Please Help End These Barbaric Acts Of Neglect. Vice President of Research Thomas Parks' response? These are all "relatively minor offenses."
It is with anguish that we write to you regarding the horrific "experiments" being conducted on defenseless animals at the University of Utah. I am not at all surprised to learn that UU has been cited for multiple violations of federal animal protection laws. Why? What is the purpose of torturing sentient beings who perceive pain, fear, loneliness, and misery just as we humans do? Does their suffering not move you at all? Why heartlessly and viciously destroy the well-being, spirit, and life of a perfectly healthy animal as he cries out to you for respite? I trust if the situation were reversed, you would hope and pray for rescue. It is within your power to end this suffering, and I beseech you to pursue that duty. We The Undersigned Ask You To Please Immediately End The Exploitation, Abuse, and Torture of Animals at The University of Utah. Thank You For Your Attention In This Matter
