Help End Maternal Deprivation Experiments at UW-Madison

Tell UW-Madison System President Kevin P. Reilly that depriving baby monkeys of their mothers and then terrorizing them is unacceptable, is NOT useful for humans and is horrifically cruel. Tell him to put a stop to Ned Kalin’s ridiculous experiments once and for all.

Over the past 18 years, Dr. Kalin’s research using monkeys to study the neurobiology of fear has cost taxpayers many millions of dollars. In the past ten years alone, it has cost us $5,075,798. [National Institutes of Health. Grant R01MH046729. Development and Regulation of Emotion in Primates.]

Tell AFAR Travel Magazine To Stop Glorifying Fur Trapping

In the January-February 2013 issue of AFAR (a travel magazine), in an article featuring Quebec City, travel journalist Jennifer Kahn glorifies fur trapping, and marvels at pelts from beavers, wolves, ermines and lynx – animals killed by a local trapper.
As an educational and sophisticated travel magazine, AFAR should be aware of the incredible cruelty and torture of innocent animals involved in trapping for animal fur. Even companion animals like dogs and cats are frequently injured or killed in indiscriminate trapping devices.
Tell AFAR’s EVP Publisher and VP Associated Publisher that you oppose recreational and commercial trapping because it devastates animal populations, and the cruelty inherent in trapping should not be glorified in AFAR’s magazine or website.

About rachel

Hi, I'm Rachel and I've been active with NARN as long as I've been vegan 13 years! I made the choice to be vegan after learning about what happens to egg laying chickens and dairy cows. I had previously been vegetarian for 7 years because I finally made the connection that beef came from cows and pork came from pigs (duh, I know). I didn't want my food choices to cause the death of an animal. It just seems like common sense to not eat animals if you care at all about animals, the earth or your fellow human beings. I became active with NARN because after I found out about the atrocities happening to animals, I felt that I had to do what I could to help stop these injustices. NARN is local, puts the animals first, and networks with other groups. We aren't worried about getting credit - just helping the animals. One of my favorite quotes is: "I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." ~ Leo Rosten and "Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they know to be right cannot be done." --Russell W. Davenport
