Thanks for this alert. I sent the e-mail and also called Dr. Moore's office. I voiced not only my moral objection and also stated clearly that I'm a tax-paying citizen of Colorado who doesn't want education dollars spent on such awful, unnecessary programs.

i typically don't send emails like this to the list, but this is a winnable and local issue. please consider emailing and calling CU and let them know how reputation damaging this is for a a forward thinking (supposedly) higher education facility. not to mention how damaging it is to these poor, innocent creatures that are tortured and killed- when there are far better (and kinder) ways to learn.[address removed]>

PETA has learned through records obtained from the University of Colorado-Boulder (CU-Boulder) that in the school's biology classes, frogs have their heads cut off and their muscles and nerves removed in crude physiology experiments. In cruel psychology experiments, students force rats to swim to the point of exhaustion and despair in water mazes. In other barbaric experiments, live rats have their hearts removed so that students can apply various drugs and study the reaction, and students place fish in tanks and then add "intruder" fish and watch them fight.
PETA has already expressed its concerns to CU-Boulder and urged the school to replace these animal laboratories with superior, non-animal teaching methods such as interactive computer simulations. The University of Colorado's Denver campus has already confirmed that its curriculum does not include any classroom animal experiments even though the same courses are offered. Now, PETA is calling on you to help end these archaic experiments.
Please click here to contact CU-Boulder Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Russell Moore and politely ask him to replace the school's cruel and deadly experiments on rats, frogs, and fish with humane, non-animal teaching methods.
Thank you for all that you are doing to help animals!
