The History of the Animal Rights Movement
Slate.com just published part one of a gripping five-part series detailing the history of the animal rights movement as it relates to animal testing and biomedical research. The feature starts with the story of Pepper, a female Dalmatian who was stolen off a Pennsylvania farm in 1965, and subsequently died a gruesome death on a hospital lab table in the Bronx. The story showcases how this one incident sparked a national movement that forever impacted American science.
Within the piece, we link to our Facebook group “Where’s Pepper,” where there is a lively dialogue taking place on the subject of animal testing. I thought you’d want to share the link to the story with your readers, as your supporters would certainly help elevate the level of debate and discussion online. Also of note is that the story’s author, Daniel Engber, will be checking in to the Facebook group periodically to respond directly to reader questions.
Part one of Slate’s “Pepper” feature can be found here, http://www.slate.com/id/2219224/. The four remaining chapters of the story will be published throughout the week.
Thanks so much for checking it out.
