2009 ENDS WITH 2 MORE IMPORTANT WINS FOR ANIMALS!

KINSHIP CIRCLE PRIMARY / PERMISSION TO CROSSPOST

12/31/09: 2009 Ends With 2 More Important Wins For Animals!
1. Torture At Texas Tech Ends For Cats!
2. Primate Breeding Compound Canceled In Puerto Rico (but action still needed)

================================================================

1. Torture At Texas Tech Ends For Cats!
SOURCE: Victory! Texas Tech Drops Cruel Cat Lab
http://blog.peta.org/archives/2009/12/victory_texas_tech.php

12/29/09, SUMMARY: Kinship Circle supporters joined PETA and activists
everywhere to urge Texas Tech University Health Service Center (TTUHSC) to
use simulated models for medical training courses. For more than two
decades, TTUHSC students drove plastic tubes down cats’ windpipes, causing
them to bleed or swell. Trainees also pumped air into the cats’ chest
cavities and extracted surplus air via an inserted needle.

Though TTUHSC earlier agreed to stop purchasing cats from Odessa, Texas
Animal Control, it was unclear whether they’d permanently replace the cruel
labs with synthetic models like simulators and manikins. Now it’s official.
PETA says university reports confirm: “TTUHSC will no longer use cats for
this training!” We’re certain that the thousands of Kinship Circle followers
who sent comments in one of our highest participation campaigns ever
contributed to this big win for animals.

IF YOU HAVE NOT YET DONE SO, TAKE ACTION HERE:

2. Primate Breeding Compound Canceled In Puerto Rico
SOURCE: VICTORY! Construction of Bioculture’s Monkey Factory Halted
http://blog.peta.org/archives/2009/12/victory_bioculture.php

12/30/09, SUMMARY: Thousands of monkeys will be spared from misery. Though
primate experiments have failed to yield tangible data for AIDS,
Alzheimer’s, stroke, cancer, and other diseases — construction of a huge
monkey-breeding compound was planned for Guayama, Puerto Rico. Bioculture, a
primate supply firm, had intended to seize monkeys from the wild in
Mauritius for shipment to Puerto Rico. From there, babies would have been
separated from mothers and sold into a barren world of concrete and metal.

Kinship Circle members shared in the global outcry against this pointless
primate breeding factory. A lawsuit filed by local citizens and PETA, in
conjunction with worldwide pressure, has culminated in a Superior Court
judge’s ruling to terminate all construction of the Bioculture facility.

Unfortunately, Bioculture execs are hard at work trying to overturn the
judge’s ruling. Let officials know that citizens worldwide support PERMANENT
termination of this and any future monkey-breeding compounds:
