We need your help to stop the killing of pigs by the University of Washington (UW). This week, PCRM filed a complaint with the United States Department of Agriculture, explaining that UW is violating the federal Animal Welfare Act by using live pigs

Before anyone goes off the deep end believing this, they might want to do their own homework. I live near Seattle, and strange that there has been NOTHING said about any of this on ANY of the local news channels, nor online NOR in the papers. Well, guess what? Googling the story to find out the facts if any, from an independent source, there aren't any! The only two websites that mention anything about this are PETA and PCRM, which is a branch OF PETA. I wouldn't believe what they say if they swore on a stack of Bibles.

signed. Hey Diane L.....why would PETA spread lies? They've done some good underground research in the past. Of course local news wouldn't dare publish it.....try going against a corporation or a university. I work for a university and you would be surprised to find out who greases whose palm on the academic levels. Almost as much politics going on than in Congress!

Gloria asked why PETA would spread lies. Well, Gloria, either you are joking, you are sarcastic, or you are very nave or ignorant, or all of the former. PETA spreads lies to support their agenda of eliminating the "ownership" of pets by humans, and to eliminate the keeping of all livestock, period. They have spread so many falsehoods and lies, nothing they say is to be believed without investigation to make sure their so-called videos are not edited or completely fake. Want proof? Google it and read it for yourself.

As for this story, I live in the Seattle area, and watch 3 local TV network news programs daily, not to mention an independent, and also check online for further information that such a network news program may not have. There is not ONE article or shred of information about this except for THIS story and the PETA article it's linked to.

Elizabeth, you can't be serious in asking that question. I live near Seattle, and all my TV affiliates are Seattle stations. I watch each every single day, as well as read the newspapers and guess what? I also have access to the internet so can "Google" any subject that is of interest. So can you. If you "Google" this one, the only website that comes up is to this article in Care2. The writer got her "info" from PETA who is not exactly a trustworthy source.
