Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any way.

Tell CU-Boulder to STOP Abusing Animals in Classroom Labs!

RatIn cruel classroom biology and psychology experiments at the University of Colorado–Boulder (CU-Boulder), students cut off frogs' heads and experiment on the animals' muscles, skin, and nerves; force terrified rats to swim in water mazes; and cut open live rats in order to apply drugs to their exposed, beating hearts.

Fortunately, interactive computer simulations and other effective non-animal teaching methods are available to replace the cruel experiments at CU-Boulder, and these methods have repeatedly been shown to teach students as well as or better than animal-based lessons. Even the University of Colorado–Denver has confirmed that it does not use any live animal laboratories in its undergraduate biology or psychology courses.

In summer 2013, following complaints filed by PETA and e-mails from tens of thousands of our supporters, CU-Boulder called for an in-depth review of all its crude classroom experiments on live animals in light of the effective non-animal teaching methods now available.

Please send an e-mail to Dr. Russell Moore, CU-Boulder's provost and executive vice chancellor for academic affairs, and politely ask him to replace the school's cruel and deadly classroom experiments on rats and frogs with humane, non-animal teaching methods.
