(US) Protestors target lab treatment of animals
[The Daily Princetonian]
A coalition of animal rights activists protested the University's alleged mistreatment of animals used in research at the intersection of Nassau Street and Washington Road on Saturday.
The protest resulted from an anonymous letter written by a former University laboratory employee detailing various animal conduct violations. The letter was published online by the group Stop Animal Exploitation Now! on Sept. 29. Included with the letter were graphic pictures of distressed primates and dead rats allegedly taken at the University by the anonymous employee.
The coalition of protestors included 10 to 15 activists from a variety of organizations based in New Jersey and New York throughout the afternoon. Individual protestors held poster-sized photos from the original anonymous letter. Activist organizers read anti-primate testing statements using a bullhorn.
