Follow-up Protest Keeps the Heat on UCSF
Activists Return to Protest Dog Experiments Before Summer Break
In Defense of Animals (IDA) and BAARN co-sponsored a protest at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) to return the spotlight on the University's determination to conduct painful heart experiments on hundreds of dogs. Several advocates brought their dogs to remind people that the animals used in experiments are living beings with feelings and personalities. This event was similar to the Dog March that the groups held in April, which drew public and media attention to the plight of UCSF's animal victims. Before UCSF's students and staff left for summer break, they held a follow-up dog protest. This time it was at the main campus of UCSF (a different location than original), on May 25, Wednesday, at 10 A.M. A number of activists took the morning off to go with their canine companions. Dr. Katz of In Defense of Animals was there again and the groups received more media attention for the plight of animals at UCSF including broadcast news coverage.
