50 Years of Kitten Killing Funded by Your Tax Dollars
A recent investigation by our friends at White Coat Waste Project uncovered the horrific and senseless killing of kittens in useless USDA experiments that have been taking place in secret for 50 years! This must stop now!
The investigation uncovered a USDA lab in Maryland that deliberately breeds kittens and then feeds them Toxoplasma parasite-infected meat. The experimenters then collect the kittens' feces for a period of 2-3 weeks to harvest the Toxoplasma parasite for use in other experiments, then kill all the kittens! This is despicable and insane and has got to end.
Fortunately, you can help stop this. A bill has been introduced by Congressman Mike Bishop (R-MI) to end this killing. H.R. 5780, the Kittens in Traumatic Testing Ends Now (KITTEN) Act, seeks to end these useless experiments once and for all.
