The Continuation of the abuse these poor animals are suffering Must be brought to an End. We urge that You Eric P Sandgren Put an End to these useless Experiments which are doing nothing but exposing innocent living beings to extreme torture and pain,distress and Death. Together we can stop this abuse of animals and prevent many more from ever becoming test subjects in some laboratory. 

Experimenters have justified the use of 30 cats like Double Trouble per year.

UW staff ultimately determined that their experiment with Double Trouble was a failure, and they killed and decapitated her so that they could examine her brain.

The University of Wisconsin–Madison fought for more than three years to keep these photographs of Double Trouble's abuse a secret until a successful PETA lawsuit compelled the university to release the disturbing images.

WARNING: The photographs that follow are graphic.
