When Kirby Mauro found out that professors at her school were encouraging students to cut holes in rabbits’ chests, inject them with various drugs, and then kill them, she was horrified. Thankfully, as one of the leaders of STAAR (Students Taking Action for Animal Rights) on campus, she was in a position to do something about it.
She and her other group members started gathering petition signatures, encouraging the school to replace the cruel experiments with scientific non-animal alternatives, which are widely available.
Last week, she even confronted the University president about the issue during an open forum, asking him why he’s allowing his school’s reputation to be dragged down by refusing to join the 21st century.
Here, I’ll start: “Kirby, you ROCK!”
Well, I love Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, CSI, Criminal Minds, Doctor Who and comic books (I mean, my profile pic IS Damian Wayne and Bat-Cow...). I'm kind of spazzy and I tend to ramble... I'm also an obsessive perfectionist...heh heh...a science/tech nerd and a vegetarian.
