New York – As U.S. Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro receives a Distinguished Service Award on the Navy League of the USA’ 120th Anniversary Dinner at The Plaza lodge on Thursday, a big “sheep” and a flock of PETA supporters shall be outdoors ratcheting up calls for for the U.S. Navy to finish its undistinguished decompression and oxygen toxicity experiments on sheep and different animals. The group notes that there are lots of animal-free, human-relevant strategies that might change these wasteful exams, which different profitable navies, together with these of France and the U.Okay., have already deserted.
When: Thursday, November 10, 5:30 p.m.
The place: The Plaza, 768 Fifth Ave. (close to the intersection with E. 59th Avenue), New York
“Sheep are light, trusting animals, but the U.S. Navy is squeezing the life out of them on the taxpayers’ dime in agonizing decompression exams,” says PETA Vice President Shalin Gala. “PETA urges Secretary Del Toro to cease lagging behind our allies in banning this cruelty and embracing humane, superior, animal-free analysis.”
PETA—whose motto reads, partially, that “animals will not be ours to experiment on”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
