Excellent recap of what’s going on around Madison regarding the use of monkeys in cruel experiments at the University of Wisconsin-Madison .
The owner of a Richland County animal shelter who was convicted of six counts of animal cruelty was sentenced Thursday. Jennifer Petkus, who owned Thyme & Sage Ranch, was sentenced to three years of probation with no jail time.
For over four years, AFA volunteer and activist extraordinaire Ann Emerson has spent most Saturdays at Madison’s farmers’ market on Capitol Square. Ann visits with shoppers, talks about what is going on behind closed doors at the UW Primate Center, and manages to convert some of the most skeptical passers by. This summer we are thrilled to increase our presence with the addition of the Simply Vegan and Elephants Living Free campaigners.
So whether your interest is antivivisection, veganism, or animals in entertainment, you’ll be sure to be enlightened by stopping by our table this summer. We would love to have you join us!
