Response to Faygo Kid (Original post)

Thu Feb 7, 2013, 08:45 PM

9. Does anyone actually care to hear the University's side of the story?

Or is PETA all of a sudden a reliable source of objective information?

I only ask because, if you actually read PETA's statement on the issue, you'd think there was an Animal Cruelty department at UW, where scientists blow boatloads of NIH funding for the sole purpose of torturing animals.

My wife is a biologist. She employs a "no whiskers" rule in her lab, partly because she is fond of animals, and partly because the red tape relative to animal models is prohibitively long and convoluted. The NIH employs stringent ethics guidelines where animal testing is concerned. If the researchers at UW are found to be in violation of these guidelines, they will be in hot water.

In the meantime, I shan't be placing my trust in the word of pathological liars.
