On Saturday, two PETA supporters were arrested after going onto the field at Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville, Mississippi. The supporters went onto the field after Isaiah Spiller scored a three-yard touchdown in the second quarter.
The two women – one was tackled by the security – were reportedly brandishing signs that claimed “Texas A&M: Stop Cruel Dog Tests.” They were reportedly upset with the Aggies experimenting with golden retrievers.
The dogs were bred to have muscular dystrophy (MD) that made them unable to walk, swallow, or breathe.
“For decades, generations of dogs have suffered and died in gruesome experiments that haven’t led to a cure for muscular dystrophy in humans,” says PETA Senior Vice President Kathy Guillermo. “PETA is calling on Texas A&M to care about these tormented dogs as much as it does its football games and release them into loving homes.”
The two women have been charged with disorderly conduct and trespassing.
PETA previously released video footage that showed that the golden retrievers — along with other dogs — at Texas A&M University were being mistreated. They were being used to show ‘crippling and painful form of canine MD struggling to walk, swallow, and even breathe.’
Due to pressure, according to PETA, Texas A&M was forced to stop breeding animals to develop the disease. Despite being shut down, 25 dogs, at least PETA is reporting, still live at the location.
