At Johns Hopkins University, people are testing Barn Owls' brains by cutting into their skulls! According to Peta, "Johns Hopkins claims that these experiments can help us treat ADHD in humans. But studying the brains of trapped, terrified owls as they perform unnatural tasks has nothing to do with ADHD. Capturing these gentle creatures, confining them, and subjecting them to painful surgeries and unnatural tests is cruel." When the experimenters test on the owls, they scream in pain!
According to Peta, "Documents obtained by PETA reveal that Johns Hopkins University experimenter Shreesh Mysore cuts into the skulls of barn owls, inserts electrodes into their brains, forces them to look at screens for hours a day, and bombards them with noises and lights—and pretends that doing this will tell us something about attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in humans."
