Inspired by Wes Anderson’s latest film, Isle of Dogs, we just released our own stop-motion animated video to raise awareness of the dogs suffering in Texas A&M University’s laboratory.
The new video short depicts a canine in Texas A&M’s laboratory, where experimenters purposely breed dogs to develop crippling muscular dystrophy (MD) and then experiment on them. Check out the short movie:
Workers at the laboratory force dogs to live in barren cages. MD causes the animals to have weakened jaw muscles and swollen tongues. The dogs have difficulty swallowing and even eating. Ropes of saliva hang from their mouths.
This disease is so debilitating in dogs that it causes puppies to become severely crippled and increases their chances of enduring agonizing deaths at a young age because of severe difficulty swallowing and breathing and heart problems.
Nearly four decades of cruel experiments on dogs have failed to produce a cure or even a treatment to reverse symptoms of MD in humans. We’re calling for these senseless experiments to end and for all surviving dogs to be released from the “trash island” of a laboratory.
