Stop University from Torturing and Killing Birds

Target:Peter Salovey, Chancellor of Yale University

Goal: Stop Ms. Lattin’s cruel bird experiments.

Christine Lattin, an experimenter at Yale University, has allegedly been luring wild birds, trapping them, and putting them through extremely stressful and painful experiments. It is time to stop this cruelty.

Reportedly, feeders have been put out to lure and capture wild birds for experimentation. During these experiments, these birds are supposedly being confined in a cloth bag, rolled around, restrained multiple times a day, and wounded without pain relief. After weeks of experimentation, the birds are allegedly killed. This research is not only physically debilitating, but mentally debilitating as well.

Sign this petition and demand Yale University put an end to these experiments. The experiments have yielded no useful results. The needless suffering needs to end now.


Dear Mr. Salovey,

It has come to my attention that Christine Lattin, an experimenter at your prestigious university, has allegedly been tormenting and killing birds. Her research has yielded no useful results and it is time to stop this unnecessary cruelty.

Reportedly, Ms. Lattin is using feeders to lure and trap wild birds for her experiments. Then, she supposedly induces stress on the birds by confining them, rolling them around, restraining them multiple times a day, and injuring them without pain relief. After weeks of enduring these experiments, the birds are allegedly killed.

Please consider ending Ms. Lattin’s unjustifiable research. These birds are needlessly suffering and dying for inconclusive research.

  1. Christine Lattin’s cruel experiments on birds are horrifying. What is she doing out free? She is a sadistic deranged animal abuser who should be serving time in prison for animal cruelty.

  2. Brian O'Neill says:

    I want to know what is the rationale behind Christine Layton’s experiments. Nothing could justify the particulars reported at this website and at that of PETA. Have the ethics people at Yale signed off on this? This is shocking and not what I had hoped to find connected to Yale.


  4. Just another sick individual, deriving pleasure from cruelty. Calling this abomination “research” is a cover up for her sick cruelty. Disgusting moron.

  5. Barton Dixon says:

    “If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals.” Albert Einstein
    “Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness of character; and it may be confidently asserted that he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.” Authur Schopenhauer

  6. This cruelty must end. There is no sane rationale
    to support these deplorable experiments. Surely
    Yale University knows this and will stop this capture, torture and killing of birds. As for Christine Lattin, she must be very sadistic, evil and deranged. Imagine how she must treat any companion animal in her home! End these deplorable experiments immediately!

  7. Adam Ireland says:

    Just listened to an interview with Christine. Very interesting work she is doing that has potential to reduce stress in many different animals.

    She seems very conscientious and I feel she should be encouraged to expand her research.
