Wisconsin Assembly Bill 40/Senate Bill 27 Sends Dogs to Animal Testing / Vivisection / Torture!! Not Just About Unions: Nope, I’m Not Joking
Thank you first to the person who forwarded this to me.
There's lots going on (unfortunately) but I'm going to let this shocking story run first for a couple days.
All I can say is what the hell? Why would this even be thought of AND, who in the world thought of this? My guess is the actual universities themselves stepped up to SNEAK this one in. Sick.
So, in other words…say your dog gets away and it’s not chipped. It then goes unclaimed as you search frantickaly for it. But, the Yahoos at the pound say “screw it” and send it right to “…the University of Wisconsin System, the University of Wisconsin–Madison, the Medical College of Wisconsin, Inc., or to any other educational institution of higher learning” and it ends up being tortured in horrible vivisection “experiments.” Read below and you’ll see it can happen. The text in bold says it all.
If you live in Wisconsin, it’s pretty clear what to do: oppose this bill - Wisconsin Assembly Bill 40/Senate Bill 27: and let everyone know about "SECTION 2704. 174.13 (2) the section which sneaks in pro vivisection tactics. Read below. You won’t freaking believe this!
From Wisconsin Assembly Bill 40/Senate Bill 27:
"SECTION 2704. 174.13 (2) of the statutes is amended to read:
174.13 (2) Any officer or pound which has custody of an unclaimed dog may
release the dog to the University of Wisconsin System, the University of
Wisconsin–Madison, the Medical College of Wisconsin, Inc., or to any other
educational institution of higher learning chartered under the laws of the state and accredited to the University of Wisconsin System or University of
Wisconsin–Madison, upon requisition by the institution. The requisition shall be in
writing, shall bear the signature of an authorized agent, and shall state that the dog
is requisitioned for scientific or educational purposes. If a requisition is made for a
greater number of dogs than is available at a given time, the officer or pound may
supply those immediately available and may withhold from other disposition all
unclaimed dogs coming into the officer’s or pound’s custody until the requisition is
fully discharged, excluding impounded dogs as to which ownership is established
within a reasonable period. A dog left by its owner for disposition is not considered
an unclaimed dog under this section. If operated by a county, city, village or town,
the officer or pound is entitled to the payment of $1 for each dog requisitioned."
