Oregon State University (Update 28.02.2014: It’s NOT OSU. It is Colégio Lutheran Concòrdia – more info): Stop brutal testing on cats!
Take Action NOW and Sign the Petition: http://www.yousign.org/en/oregon-testing
For research purposes, universities from across the globe are willing to go to any lengths including savage / brutal / heartless animal testing. All with the hope of finding some sort scientific breakthrough that will make them money Well, this means that millions of animals will have died for nothing.
In our latest case,
Oregon State University (Update 28.02.2014: It’s NOT OSU. It is Colégio Lutheran Concòrdia – more info) has begun a tax-funded experiment that includes removing kittens’ eyeballs, then forcing them to jump from a high platform onto a plank in a pan of water. Or just chopping the cat’s head off, as pictured above. Oregon State University (Update 28.02.2014: It’s NOT OSU. It is Colégio Lutheran Concòrdia – more info) has received a $95, 000 grant for these atrocities.
Please stop these savage experiments and let the animals live their life!

Official statement from Oregon State University:

I wanted to inform you that this post has some inaccuracies:
The details described in the post are not accurate. We also traced the photos, and they’re from an article on a university in Brazil (that’s why the signs in the background are in Portugese) where these events apparently took place.
Please remove the post or the references to Oregon State University. I can assure you that OSU follows very strict research guidelines and the scenes depicted and described in the article would never take place here.
I applaud your dedication to animal welfare, and I know for a fact that there are many of us here on campus share your concerns. I’d like to note that our Vet Med students and faculty volunteer in large numbers at human societies around the state. And this recent article is a better example of how OSU is engaged in caring for animal wellbeing:
Thanks for the consideration.
