A research facility at the University of Southern Mississippi has been allowing ticks to feast on rabbits and hamsters. This torture leads to a massive deterioration of health for the animals, and many have to be euthanized because of their injuries

Man never ceases to amaze me for his cruelty............make sure what you ingest or buy does not come from a business that uses animals for testing .I stopped using my pet food for that reason and other cosmetics etc.....it is worth the time to know what you are promoting

I have had ticks on me They are not nice and cant imagine if they keep doing this to them how they must suffer
Ignorant pigs that do this Put ticks all over them and just leave them see how they would like it Maybe they would all die of tick fever and there would be a few less people to test on animals I am sure these people that run these places just like to see animals suffer and have sadistic minds Wish all these people that maim and kill animals could be exterminated Maybe with Karma one day they will be can only hope so

Signed. Stop using animals for testing. This is a torture chamber and death for these innocent victims. How would they like being pulled from their homes, shoved in a cage and be covered in ticks, I think they should try it on themselves. Don't hey want to know how it affects humans???

Noted, Signed & Shared! How can people think that this is science? This is nothing but shameful cruelty! I don't even know how anyone could conceive of doing such awful things to these sentient beings! It's hard to believe that at least some civilized and compassionate students wouldn't at least protest these monstrous "experiments in cruelty." What knowledge can anyone gain by putting ticks all over a poor animal and letting them suffer so! This whole dept. should be charged with animal cruelty! If this is a state school, which I think it is, that means the tax payers of Mississippi are paying for this vicious animal cruelty!

"It seems to me of great importance to teach children respect for life. Towards this end, experiments on living animals in classrooms should be stopped. To encourage cruelty in the name of science can only destroy the finer emotions of affection and sympathy, and breed an unfeeling callousness in the young towards suffering in all living creatures." - Eleanor Roosevelt, (former First Lady of the United States of America)
