University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston has mutilated, tortured and burned animals, including isolating a monkey

This is a horrible horrible story. I have to wonder if these people that have done this to the animals even have a soul, heart or conscience! It really is a shame that our country doesn't have laws that say that once convicted of a horrible crime like this, the same things are done to them as they have done to the animals. I personally would like to get a hold of some of these people that have done this. Those poor animals to have suffered soooooo much before their death!  Do these idiots think that they feel no pain!!!!!!!  Imagine, if they have children and what they will become and how they are treated. What are they teaching the students that animals don't count!!!!! This is an awful crime of humanity!!!!!
Animals Mutilated, Burned at University of Texas Lab
Opinion by PETA

(16 Hours Ago) in Society / Animal Rights
A whistleblower at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB) has contacted PETA to report horrifying—and potentially illegal—abuses of dogs, sheep, monkeys, mice, and other animals who were tormented for experiments in the school's laboratories.

The insider reported that as a result of experiments in which dogs were cut open and had tubes surgically implanted in their colons, one dog died during surgery and another suffered in pain and died when staff members didn't provide post-operative painkillers.

UTMB experimenters also induced spinal cord and nerve damage in sheep, and in one instance, a sheep apparently couldn't stand for three days following surgery and was given no pain relief. Mice apparently died from dehydration, and a monkey was locked in a room all by himself, even though monkeys require social contact with other members of their species to maintain sanity and physical health.

In other procedures conducted in this hellhole, experimenter Daniel Traber subjected sheep, pigs, and mice to third-degree burns on up to 40 percent of their bodies by searing off their skin with a Bunsen burner or a scorching-hot metal rod and forced the animals to inhale smoke.

PETA has filed a formal complaint with the U.S. Department of Agriculture calling for an immediate investigation into these disturbing allegations. You can help by sending an e-mail to UTMB President David L. Callender urging him to investigate and discipline those responsible for abusing animals.
