SAN DIEGO -- Animal activists from San Diego and Orange counties will call for an end to animal experimentation Sunday at two science conferences at the San Diego Convention Center, 10 News reported.

The Union of the Physiological Sciences and the Experimental Biology 2005 conference will both be held at the convention center, said Jill Fritz, president of San Diego Animal Advocates.

The group opposes such alleged animal experiments as giving electrical shocks to cats, starving pregnant sheep, inducing heart attacks in dogs and causing spinal cord damage to felines, Fritz said.

"There's no immediate benefit," said Fritz.

The billions of dollars spent on the torture of animals would be better spent on preventive medicine and education, she said.

"We're there because these experiments are cruel and wasteful," Fritz said.

The advocates will be at the convention center at noon to hand out leaflets and confront those attending the conferences, Fritz said.
