Penn Targeted By Animal Rights Protesters

A press release has arrived, letting us know that the University of Pennsylvania will be the site of an animal rights protest today, 12:30 to 6 p.m. at 24th and Walnut streets. Why? Animal ACTivists of Philly says federal reports show the university castrated more than 1,500 baby pigs without anesthesia. This isn’t the first time Penn has been the subject of such protests: In 2011, 10 activists marched at the same corner after the school received a federal warning about the deaths of a puppy and three gerbils.
