Anneliese Emerson: More light needed on animal experiments : Ct

Dear Editor: I was happily surprised to see the commentaries by Rick Bogle and Zorba Paster mentioning the use of animals at the University of Wisconsin. I table every weekend at the Capitol Square Farmers’ Market for the Alliance for Animals. People who identify themselves as university or Covance employees stop at my table regularly and tell me that they agree that the use of animals in the labs is cruel, but that they won’t sign a petition out of fear of retaliation by their employers.

My parents emigrated from Germany after World War II. I’ve listened for years to people asking why the German people didn’t speak out about the atrocities. That’s a big part of why I’m speaking out now. Without articles like Bogle’s and even Paster’s in local papers, the public is left in the dark and doesn’t have much of a chance to learn about this issue.
