People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals

Columbia University is celebrating its homecoming this coming weekend, and we need your help to alert Columbia faculty, staff, students, and alumni to the plight of animals imprisoned in the university’s labs. We’ll be having three demonstrations. I hope you can make one, two, or all three!

Date: Friday, October 1
Time: 12:30 p.m.-1:30 p.m.
Place: Columbia University entrance, Broadway at West 116th Street

Date: Friday, October 1
Time: 8 p.m.-9 p.m.
Place: Outside the West End, 2909 Broadway (between West 113 and West 114 streets)

Date: Saturday, October 2
Time: 12 noon-1 p.m.
Place: Outside Baker Field Athletic Complex, Broadway at West 218th Street

We are calling on Columbia to permanently end three crude and cruel experiments exposed by a veterinary whistleblower in the university’s labs. One Columbia experimenter cut out the left eyes of baboons and used the empty eye sockets to clamp critical blood vessels to their brains, inducing a stroke. Another experimenter surgically implants heavy pipes into the skulls of rhesus macaques to induce stress, to then study the connection between stress and women’s menstrual cycles. A third experimenter pumps nicotine into pregnant baboons and cuts into their fetuses in utero. There is no excuse for any of these crude and painful, traumatic experiments.

For more information on the campaign, please check out www.ColumbiaCruelty.com  

Please bring your friends, family, anyone you can! If you need more information on the demonstrations on Friday and Saturday, feel free to get in touch with me via email or via phone (757-622-7382, ext. 8210). Thank you for all that you do for animals.

Best regards,
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals

"What I saw at Columbia still gives me nightmares. I saw baboons whose left eyes had been cut out - so that major blood vessels could be clamped off through the empty eye sockets to induce strokes - who had collapsed in their cages, unable even to lift their heads, eat, or drink after this horrendous surgery. They were left in these dire conditions without any painkillers, as the experimental protocol demanded and denied the merciful release of euthanasia."

- Dr. Catherine Dell'Orto, former post-doctoral veterinarian fellow at Columbia University who blew the whistle on cruelty in the univeristy's labs
