Two victories, please take further action on one

1. We are pleased to inform you that NBC Sports has responded to PETA and compassionate individuals like yourself and has canceled the depraved National Rifle Association (NRA)—sponsored big game hunting show Under Wild Skies. As you know, the show depicted NRA lobbyist Tony Makris as he hunted elephants, hippopotamuses, antelope, buffalo, crocodiles, and numerous other exotic animals—including one episode in particular that featured Makris laughing as he shot an African bull elephant in the face. Thanks to all of you who responded to our action alert, NBC Sports will no longer include Makris’ sadistic exploits in its television programming.

Thank you for your support and for all that you do for animals!

2. Please take a moment to write NIH and urge it to cut funding for this cruelty to cats.

It took detailed complaints and evidence submitted by PETA—along with hundreds of thousands of e-mails and calls from compassionate and dedicated people like you—but the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has agreed that cats, such as Double Trouble and Broc (pictured below), have suffered greatly in horrific brain experiments at the University of Wisconsin–Madison (UW–Madison).

An NIH report released yesterday reveals that PETA prompted the agency to take the exceptionally rare step of ordering UW–Madison to suspend the experiment for nearly six months and to implement major changes.

Broc is still alive in the laboratory

The agency agreed with PETA that UW–Madison failed to take sufficient steps to prevent infected, open head wounds in cats and to subsequently treat them. NIH also agreed that UW-Madison’s justification for the use of cats as well as the number of cats used was inadequate. Although the new report downplays some of the serious problems in the laboratory and all but ignores the routine abuse of cats, NIH ordered major reforms in the UW-Madison laboratory, where cats have holes drilled into their skulls, are deafened, are coerced through starvation to participate in experiments, and are then killed.

NIH’s findings echo a separate damning report released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in February, also spurred by a PETA complaint, that found rampant infections among the cats used in this experiment. Some infections were so severe that they resulted in euthanasia, and one cat’s eye had to be removed.

Compelling NIH to take serious action is no small feat, but more work needs to be done to get cats such as Broc out of this laboratory for good!

Please take a moment to write NIH and urge it to cut funding for this cruelty to cats.

Thank you for all that you do for animals.
