The people who did this should be locked up. So called "professionals". Truly appalling that this happens in this day and age.

Please read as awareness really does need to be made. This cannot continue to happen. But it is

ugh :'(''''''''''''''''''''''''

Hold your cat tonight and let them know how much you love them, any animal for that matter. And Rest in peace all these poor animals that are used as experiments. Sickening.

I encourage people to read this http://host.madison.com/news/opinion/column/guest/eric-sandgren-cat-research-after-all-the-drama/article_6af13b52-77c9-11e2-8b77-001a4bcf887a.html  and http://www.news.wisc.edu/21046  before making any conclusions. I do not support animal cruelty but in some cases I do think it is necessary to help people through first experimenting on animals and I am definitely not convinced that these experiments were cruel.  I could not find any website I'd call truly credible condemning the research- it seems to be mostly PETA who I personally do not trust.  The link above is also PETA.  There is no other website that claims the cats head was chopped off.  I flatly do not believe it based on my (admittedly limited) research over the past hour.

In no case do I believe animals should be put second to people in medical research. They do not volunteer and have no voice to say no so therefore it is torture. What a messed up world when there are so many other options.
