An insider at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston (UTMB) has contacted PETA to report that dogs, monkeys, sheep, goats, ferrets, and mice are being used in cruel experiments in which their bodies are burned, mutilated, and cut open and that these animals are also suffering as a result of inadequate veterinary care, improperly trained staff, careless handling, and severe neglect.<br><br>
The whistleblower says that experimenter Daniel Traber has subjected sheep, pigs, and mice to third-degree burns on up to 40 percent of their bodies and forced the animals to inhale smoke from burning cotton. UTMB experimenters also intentionally caused spinal cord and sciatic nerve injuries in sheep. One sheep who was subjected to back surgery reportedly could not stand for three days following the surgery and was given no pain relief.<br><br><br><a href="https://secure.peta.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=3523&autologin=true&c=weekly_enews" target="_blank">Full article to take action</a>

Followed the link and sent an e-mail, adding in some bits. I'm a graduate of the UT system, receiving my BA from the flagship (UT-Austin) in 1997 and I'm also a Texas taxpayer, so this kind of stuff really pisses me off.
