Less than a week after People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals accused the University of Wisconsin-Madison of harming animals during research, the group plans to visit campus Tuesday to protest the alleged mistreatment.
PETA made the allegations last Wednesday when it accused UW-Madison of harming cats by drilling holes in their skulls and implanting electrodes in their brains. PETA focused on one cat from the study, named Double Trouble, in particular.
PETA will visit Library Mall to display poster-size photographs of Double Trouble and to collect signatures for a petition to force the university to stop the research programs, according to a statement released by PETA.
The protest will take place Tuesday at Library Mall at noon.
