Dr. Rahn,

To protect the reputation of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, and to prevent further animal abuse, you must ban all staff from using animals who were connected to tail-withdrawal projects which left mice with necrotic (rotting) tails. Incidents such as these which not only abuse animals but also flout both federal and university authority must not be tolerated. Lab staff who participated in these events or were responsible for these experiments must never use animals again!

 

Animal Rights Group Calls for Ban on Testing
By NWAHomePage.com, July 12, 2017

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- A group of animal rights activists is calling for the University of Arkansas for Medical Science to ban certain researchers from animal testing.

The group, 'Stop Animal Exploitation Now,' said the university's medical staff discovered eight cages of animals with rotting tails, which breaks federal animal testing policies.

In a statement, the founder of the group said "this so-called scientist must be permanently banned from any further use of animals in testing."
