–On Tues., March 9 from 11:45 AM to 1 PM EST,
protest Johns Hopkins University’s Cruel Experiments on Owls at 34th &
North Charles St., Baltimore 21218. Join PETA and local activists for a COVID-safe socially
distanced protest outside the main entrance of Johns Hopkins University (JHU)
to demand that the school end the torment of owls in cruel and invasive brain
experiments. In the laboratory torture chamber at JHU, experimenter Shreesh
Mysore cuts into owls' skulls to expose their brains. Then, he screws and glues
metal devices onto their heads. The owls endure two to three invasive surgeries
before Mysore uses them in experiments. These birds—who are nocturnal hunters
who would fly great distances in their natural habitat—are forced into tight
jackets so cramped that they can't move their wings for up to 12 hours. During
these experiments, he pokes electrodes around in the brains of the fully
conscious birds, mutilating their brain tissue so severely that they become
"unusable" to him—at which point he kills them. CONTACT: Luis Correal at firstname.lastname@example.org or
404-384-9147. All participants are required to wear masks during the protest
and to maintaining a MINIMUM of 6 feet between all activists and between
activists and passersby. See http://www.mediapeta.com/.../PDF/tips_for_PETA_activists.pdf.
