Huge Primate Testing Lab Busted
Today, at a news conference in Washington, D.C., PETA revealed the findings of its 11-month undercover investigation into Covance, the international drug-testing giant.
PETA’s investigator worked as a technician inside the Vienna, Virginia, Covance laboratory, where she documented workers who were striking, choking, taunting, and deliberately tormenting terrified monkeys. She documented monkeys with broken arms left without proper veterinary treatment and animals in desperate need of euthanasia, who were kept alive and in agony just to please drug companies. Other primates, used in lethal irradiation experiments, developed open wounds on their stomachs.
When PETA called the U.S. Department of Agriculture for help during our investigation, the agency took five days to respond. Please help these suffering primates, who live in constant fear of the next horrible thing that will happen to them. Read about our investigation at CovanceCruelty.com, e-mail the USDA using our automatic e-mail form, and spread the word to friends, coworkers, neighbors, and family members.

Do It For the Bunnies
It’s that time again – time for a Wet Seal call-in! On Wednesday, May 18, we want all of you to take a few minutes to call Wet Seal at 1-866-475-2255 to voice your disgust over the chain’s continued support of the bloody, cruel fur industry. Let CEO Joel Waller, extension 4734, know that you and your friends and family are boycotting the chain until he puts in writing a permanent fur-free policy for all Wet Seal stores.
One thing that many Street Teamers have been doing is calling that toll-free 866 number from payphones. The call is free to you, but costs Wet Seal about $0.50 per call. Think about that the next time you walk by a payphone at the laundry mat, the gas station, or at your school. Remember to check the Wet Seal store locator to find the stores in your area. Ask managers and other employees to contact their corporate office to encourage Mr. Waller to do the right thing and make Wet Seal fur-free today and always.
After you’ve made your calls, submit a report on how it went using the appropriate online form and we’ll give you 500 Street Team points. Also, don’t forget to comment here to let everyone know how it went!
Wet Seal News
Hi, I’m Noah Cooper. You may remember me from peta2’s Valentine’s Day e-card? Yep, I’m a big shot. Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know what’s going on with myself and the rest of the peta2 folks. This Friday, an intern and I will be leaving Norfolk for a 5-day Wet Seal tour that promises bunches of fun and a touch of mischief.
