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.

No animal should ever be subjected to testing especially if the product that is being tested does not benefit and can harm them

I have read so many times that these experiments on animals prove nothing and gain nothing. These poor animals suffer greatly for no reason. This needs to be stopped. There are other ways to test besides using animals.
