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 change.org - 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.

I am disgusted at what some schools of higher education are willing to do in the name of science. I am sure there are many patients who would be willing to submit to testing instead of innocent animals. This is a human problem. Don’t fool yourself into thinking you are doing good. You are causing incredible pain and torturing these dogs.

Because i have a heart soul and spirit, that's why this is important. These people doing this need to find some of each. Performing, funding, allowing this rots away each and every person involved from the inside out.

No animal should suffer any experiments. Humans should be used to trial what the scientists are creating. There is no longer a need to use animals as technology replicates and trials all things just as well. Animal experimentation is cruel and abusive
