Ban Muscular Dystrophy Dog Labs at Texas A&M

PETITION: Ban Muscular Dystrophy Dog Labs at Texas A&M

TARGET: Michael K. Young, Dr. Joe Kornegay, Texas A&M University, Dean Eleanor M. Green

Going in conjunction with change.org - experimenters and experimental breeders at Texas A&M intentionally breed golden retrievers to develop different types of muscular dystrophy. These are particularly painful and severe illnesses. These are designed to produce dogs that have progressive muscle wasting and weakness. They have been doing this for about 30 years and have yet to find a cure. This breeding is done intentionally to create as sick a dog as possible.

They intentionally stretch the dogs muscles to create tears in order to help the researchers "solve" the problem. By signing this petition you are asking the researchers to shut down the facility, place the dogs in loving homes, and find new and more humane ways to go about solving the research problem.

Dogs are helpless to avoid this situation and people must speak up for them as it is pointless, cruel and no end in sight until people force it to be ended
