Shut Down Company Accused of Torturing and Drowning Live Animals

Target: Sonny Perdue, United States Secretary of Agriculture

Goal: Close down facility accused of killing animals in slow and inhumane ways.

According to an undercover video released by the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), a Minnesota-based dissection supplier allegedly drowned living pigeons and injected live crayfish with latex, among other abusive practices. Workers also allegedly stated that they placed living turtles in freezers and claimed that animals at the warehouse were killed slowly and tortuously. We must demand justice for these innocent animals who have been killed to supply schools with unnecessary dissection specimens.

The company in question, Bio Corp, claims that it has followed all existing laws and regulations, but this does not appear to be the case. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, killing animals by drowning is inhumane and unacceptable. Furthermore, Minnesota law requires that all forms of animal euthanasia be done without causing any unnecessary pain or suffering. Veterinarians estimate that it may have taken upwards of 10 minutes for the pigeons shown in the video to struggle while remaining fully conscious underwater before they died.

These sickening practices must not be tolerated. Animal dissections in classrooms are an obsolete practice, with many virtual alternatives available. Sign this petition and demand that this company be shut down for its cruel and illegal practices.


Dear Secretary Perdue,

Bio Corp, a Minnesota-based dissection supplier, stands accused of slowly torturing live animals to death to provide specimens for schools. As shown in a recent undercover video, pigeons appear to be routinely drowned while still living, and crayfish are injected with latex. Workers also claim that when frozen shipments of turtles reach them, they refreeze any survivors. All of these alleged acts subject animals to unnecessary pain and suffering and must be condemned.

Dissection in the classroom is an outdated means of teaching biology to students. Rather than supporting unethical suppliers, virtual dissection models should be encouraged. We urge you to do the right thing on behalf of these animals and ensure that this facility is permanently shut down.

  1. Any company that operates on blood money does not deserve to exist — and all employees responsible for unspeakable cruelty must be held accountable. What can these people be like in their personal lives? It is also necessary to eliminate the demand so there will be no more supply. The dissecting of animals is inherently cruel, hardens students and serves no responsible purpose. End it all now.

  2. Shut that evil place down immediately …..and a serious punishment for ALL partisapents involved in the cruelty and killings of the animals.

  3. This company should go under. Non-invasive human studies are far more effective than these primitive antediluvian methods, carried out by cruel and twisted individuals with no moral compass.


  5. Dawn Pettinger says:

    America again, such a violent country, with no laws to protect innocent animals from the dreadful abuse inflicted by bloody yanks.

  6. Marianne Crawford says:

    All these human devils need to be drowned!

  7. Maureen Downs says:

    They must recruit people with twisted minds to work here, the employees must obviously derive job satisfaction from the torture of innocent defenceless animals. It just makes me wonder when they clock off from work who or what do they torture in their leisure time. It puts me in mind of Gestapo tactics, we can experiment on anything we choose. Close this torture chamber down immediately. Dissection is out of date, other methods are available which does not involve the use of animals alive or dead.
