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.

This facility sounds like the stereotypical manipulative and abusive mother. They tell the child they love them, they nag the child on random created problems with their martyrdom, then guilt them into solving problems they made, and then try to show they love them again.

Animals shouldn't have to die for children to live? There are other ways to do the tests?

It's just wrong to inflict pain intentionally upon any creature dogs have the same stuff in their brain that we have as humans except for a speech center they cry they hurt they feel leave them. alone
