A representative for PETA will be on campus tomorrow to report the findings of an investigation on the Vassar campus. Here is a message from the Vassar Animal Rights Coalition:
"PETA has targeted Vassar for an investigation into animal testing and abuse on campus, and tomorrow at 5pm in ROCKY 200, their famed investigator Dr. Alka Chandna will be revealing her findings and leading a Q&A with the audience. Maybe you saw the guy in the monkey suit on campus today handing out flyers?
VARC is encouraging all students, faculty, community members to come out and join the conversation, no matter what their opinion or affiliation. We want to open this up as an ongoing dialogue about animal rights and the ethics of scientific study."
Here is the official press release on PETA's website, which includes a quote from the Vice President of of Laboratory Investigations, as well as a graphic description of the treatment of animals in Vassar's science labs.
