Ban Muscular Dystrophy Dog Labs at Texas A&M

PETITION: Ban Muscular Dystrophy Dog Labs at Texas A&M

TARGET: Michael K. Young, Dr. Joe Kornegay, Texas A&M University, Dean Eleanor M. Green

Going in conjunction with - experimenters and experimental breeders at Texas A&M intentionally breed golden retrievers to develop different types of muscular dystrophy. These are particularly painful and severe illnesses. These are designed to produce dogs that have progressive muscle wasting and weakness. They have been doing this for about 30 years and have yet to find a cure. This breeding is done intentionally to create as sick a dog as possible.

They intentionally stretch the dogs muscles to create tears in order to help the researchers "solve" the problem. By signing this petition you are asking the researchers to shut down the facility, place the dogs in loving homes, and find new and more humane ways to go about solving the research problem.

Dogs should never be breed with sickness even a mouse gets better living conditions then theses dogs it's absolutely cruel and inhumane to treat loving and trusting animals any of them just to find a cure for any diseases animals just should never be treated in a inhumane conditions just to say that we might find a cure for any diseases and and should never be treated in a inhumane way all animals should be treated with love and respect because they are trusting and loyal if you give them love they will do anything for someone who just loves them it would be better to teach them how to help people with these diseases dogs can be helpful to people with these diseases and disabilities they can do most any thing for people who need there help to deal with their disabilities and in most cases the dogs can be helpful for people to help bring them out of their shells and learn to be productive people in society and be socially productive people in society
