If we told you that someone is bashing in the heads of animals to inflict brain damage, you’d probably be pretty pissed off, right? I mean, WHO would do something so horrific and cruel to animals?!
For years, the NFL Foundation has quietly funded deadly sports-injury experiments (which are crudely designed to recreate injuries sustained on the football field) on dogs, mice, rats, and other animals, including experiments like THIS:
These experiments, many of which are ongoing, include:
Many animals have even died during the studies because of the severe injuries that they sustained.
Studies show that experiments like these do NOT accurately replicate the complex injuries sustained by football players, and data and treatments derived from brain injury experiments on animals have repeatedly failed to help human patients.
Tell the NFL that this is NOT OK by sharing the below image on the league’s Facebook page. Be sure to include a polite message asking officials to STOP funding cruel experiments on animals and instead support more humane, non-animal methods that use human tissues and research with current and former NFL players.
