Mice Reportedly Starved and Scalded to Death at University Deserve Justice

Target: President Joan T.A. Gabel, University of Minnesota President

Goal: Fire staff who allegedly failed to follow animal welfare regulations.

An investigation by PETA claims that nearly 50 federal animal cruelty violations have occured in University of Minnesota laboratories. Instances of alleged abuse include two mice being scalded to death after being left in a hot cage, others not being fed for nearly four days and requireing emergency veterinarian procedures, a mouse discovered alive in a euthanasia bag, and 151 mice being subjected to painful and unproved amputations of their tails. Not only do the animal experiments at these laboratories need to be stopped, but any staff found to be guilty of inflicting abuse must suffer consquences. We demand that President Joan T.A. Gabel ensure any staff found responsible are fired and not allowed to have contact with animals at the university.

Sign the petition below to ensure the right people are held responsible for the any abuse occurring at University of Minnesota laboratories.


Dear President Gabel,

Reports of animal abuse by staff at University of Minnesota laboratories indicate behavior that is not only horrifyin, but illegal. PETA claims numerous violations of federal animal welfare laws are occuring, and that the laboratories are engaging in abuse and killings of innocent animals. A failure to take immediate action will demonstrate the public that the university does not care about the welfare of animals. We demand the staff accused of these violations be fired and prevented from having future contact with animals.

  1. All of those who carry out experiments on animals are sadists and continue to do so because they get some kind of perverse pleasure from it and not because they think it will somehow help humans. It has been proven time and time again that it does NOT work and we don’t deserve it to while we carry on torturing animals for our own “benefit”.Those who supposedly “care” for lab animals are not going to care about the welfare of these poor creatures any more than the morons who experiment on them do. They should all to be tortured in the name of “research” themselves.

  2. These evil,mentally deranged cretins who abuse animals must be exterminated. A slow and agonisng death for each of these cretins is essential!We need to turn these vile bastrds into fertiliser!! OH YESSS!!!!

  3. STOP this fucking LEGALIZED ANIMAL TORTURE!!!!!!
    SICK,SCUM fuck humans are in universities & getting paid to torture defenseless terrified Animals to death. What are they Teaching???? besides Animal Abuse, Animal Cruelty, Animal Neglect & Torture???? There need to learn/teach how to sterilize psychopaths like themselves! Better still,,, just torture them to death!

  4. These so called “experiments” inflicted on defenseless animals by the University of Minnesota staff must be charged with animal cruelty a federal offense. Whoever is in charge and whoever participated on these premeditated criminal acts of animal cruelty must be charged and tried, do jail time. pay fines and must be fired; no excuse.

  5. Multiple issues like this suggests that this is a culture within the university. That in itself is both worrying and disturbing and questions need to be asked and answered and dealt with including the staff.
