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Dissection in the classroom is an outdated means of teaching biology to students.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.

  2. A curse on this shithole. may your profits be negative for ever more and your doors shut forever, and those responsible for sanctioning this torture live forever in pain and misery.

  3. What kind of learning purpose does this serve? There is no excuse on this earth why animals should have to suffer these pointless and masochistic treatment. Shut down this facility and prosecute the scums.

  4. Patricia Dumais says:

    Close this company down!

  5. What is the purpose of dissecting real animals? And killing them in this horrible and cruel way? What does one learn from that? Is this going to help in any way a child or an adolescent in getting a job later in life?

  6. Human cruelty behind the closed door seems to be unimaginable and unlimited, esp. against animals for human consumption.

  7. Rosslyn Osborne says:

    “Ye must not only have kind and merciful feelings for mankind, but ye should also exercise the utmost kindness towards every living creature.
    The physical sensibilities and instincts are common to animal and man.
    Man is, however, negligent of this reality and imagines that sensibility is peculiar to mankind, therefore he practices cruelty to the animal…..
    In reality what difference is there in physical sensations! Sensibility is the same whether you harm man or animal: there is no difference. Nay, rather, cruelty to the animal is more painful because man has a tongue and he sighs, complains and groans when he receives an injury and complains to the government and the government protects him from cruelty; but the poor animal cannot speak, it can neither show its suffering nor is it able to appeal to the government.
    If it is harmed a thousand times by man it is not able to defend itself in words nor can it seek justice or retaliate…..
    Therefore one must be very considerate towards animals and show greater kindness to them than to man…. Man is generally sinful and the animal is innocent; unquestionably one must be more kind and merciful to the innocent”. Baha’i Faith Writings
    Please shut them down immediately….Heinous cruelty!

  8. Close down this cruelty now

  9. This company is run by hideously cruel sadistic sociopaths!


    The inhumane killing of these innocent animals is NOT legal, and its incredibly evil!

    Can’t believe what I’m reading, this is a story more suited to China. Such things only shame the country that allows them.
