Demand University Stop Torturing Animals for Science

Target: William Staples, President of University of Houston-Clear Lake

Goal: Stop using live animals for experimentation and research.

Animal rights organization PETA recently obtained the University of Houston-Clear Lake’s (UHCL) records about its animal experimentation. The records show that countless animals have suffered and died at the hands of UHCL. It is time to stop this unnecessary cruelty, especially when there are alternative methods that can be used thanks to modern technology.

According to the records, rats were crammed into small boxes and starved for extended periods of time. After going through incredibly stressful experiments, 10 rats were stuffed into a cage meant for six and left in a car. The overwhelming heat resulted in the deaths of six of those rats. UHCL already utilizes some cruelty-free research methods and it is time to make that the norm.

Sign this petition and demand UHCL stop torturing and killing animals.


Dear President Staples,

Animal rights organization PETA recently obtained your university’s files about its animal experimentation and research. I was disturbed at the information.

According to the records, rats were denied food and left to starve for extended periods of time. In addition, they were crammed into small cages and sometimes cages without proper ventilation. After going through stressful experiments, 10 rats were stuffed into a cage meant for six and then left in a hot car. Six rats died as a result. Your Pearland campus already utilizes cruelty-free methods for this same class and it is time your main campus do the same.

Thanks to modern technology, live animals are not a necessity for experimentation and research. It is time to start utilizing the available, alternative methods and stop torturing and killing animals.

  1. All animal torturers who are scientists should be prosecuted for their horrendous crimes, just as anyone else would be.
    All animal testing aka torture, worldwide, needs to stop.
    It is horrendous that a university – a so-called place of enlightened learning, teaching the latest in technology – would still be torturing animals for “science”!
    Animal testing is a failure and a fraud anyway. No animal ever should have been or ever should be tortured for science, or for any reason.

    I raise rats and they are very intelligent social loving animals that don’t deserve this treatment

  3. What the hell!! This is ridiculous and cruel!! Makes this place look stupid and evil. What did they THINK would happen when they put them in a hot car!!?? Retards!! I want to put THEM in a hot car and let them FRY!!!!
