Yesterday we exposed cruel animal experiments that had been approved by the Lincoln University Animal Ethics Committees.
One of these experiments involved the use of pound dogs and feral cats. These animals were fed poisoned possum for several days on end. Read more about this here.
Our supporters have responded as we knew they would, with anger and outrage. We now need to channel this passion into action!
Please send a polite message to the Lincoln University Animal Ethics Committee (the group of people who approved these cruel experiments) and ask that they do not approve animal tests like this in the future.
TAKE ACTION: Send an email to this address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Just made sure you address the email to the Lincoln University Animal Ethics Committee.

Dear Members of the Lincoln University Animal Ethics Committee,
I have recently been made aware of a series of animal experiments that you have approved in past. The experiments I am referring to can be accessed via the NZAVS website: https://nzavs.org.nz/news/2019/12/11/pound-dogs-used-for-testing-and-killed/
I am disappointed and shocked that experiments like this have been permitted by your committee. I’m urging members of your committee to refuse to approve tests like these in the future.
Animal testing and experimentation is cruel and archaic and needs to end immediately.
I strongly encourage members of your committee to refuse to approve any future application that is harmful to animals.
Note: NZAVS only promotes non-violent actions and tactics. We do not condone violence or abuse of any kind, verbal or otherwise. Please remember this when communicating with Lincoln University. We advocate respect for all beings, including humans. It also becomes easier to discredit our message when abuse of any kind is present. We are all angry about what happens to animals, but we need to channel that constructively.
