Institutionalized Animal Cruelty – Lab: University of Southern Mississippi (USM) – 20121210
On 10 September 2012, Stop Animal Exploitation Now (SAEN) http://www.saenonline.org/index.html reported:
“A University of Southern Mississippi http://www.saenonline.org/res-fr-ms-usm.html research laboratory is apparently allowing ticks to feast on rabbits and hamsters – but the horrific research has led to gruesome conditions where test subjects are so infested they are being eaten alive, according to a horrific report obtained by a national research watchdog organization.
A recently obtained federal report discloses that holes were eaten in animals’ ears, they bled from the rectum and eventually had to be euthanized – leading to multiple federal violations, charged Ohio-based SAEN, which has filed an official complaint with the USDA requesting a full federal investigation.” See: http://www.saenonline.org/press-20121210.html
We also should be writing letters in support of SAEN’s action, as well as writing letters to the editor and telling as many other people as we can.
“A scathing, four-page September, 2012, USDA inspection report http://www.saenonline.org/ms/res-fr-ms-usm-aphis-2012.html reveals multiple federal infractions at USM. The facility is cited repeatedly for inadequate supervision of an experiment that literally feeds rabbits and hamsters to colonies of ticks. The animals have been so consumed by the ticks that they developed holes in their ears, bled from the rectum, and required euthanasia.”
The Bible tells us about people like those at University of Southern Mississippi (USM) in Proverbs 12:10.
10. A righteous man has regard for the life of his beast,
But the compassion of the wicked is cruel.
We can only conclude from this Bible passage and the USDA report that the researchers at USM are wicked and cruel, and that the entire upper management of University of Southern Mississippi (USM) is equally guilty for allowing these evil acts.
We also believe that the whole animal research community is corrupt, for they love money (mostly from taxpayers) more than the lives and welfare of the animals they torture. It’s sociopathic sadism.
