Penn State's other victims
While the abused boys at Penn State have gotten a lot of coverage, there is little talk of the other abused beings at Penn State, Ohio State, Harvard, Yale, Cornell, University of Texas, Princeton, University of Michigan and thousands of other US colleges and universities.

One of many who worked at Penn State to expose the abuse has been Dr. George Cave, philosophy professor, who cofounded the group Trans Species Unlimited.

These figures are of animals harmed (most killed) at Ohio State. http://poetwill.org
