Johns Hopkins Researcher Loses License That Allowed Owls To Be Tortured In Experiments

Published: June 15, 2022 at 01:49 PM Author: Penny Eims



A Johns Hopkins University researcher will no longer be allowed to conduct cruel experiments on owls after a license was revoked following a complaint from PETA. According to a news release from PETA, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (MD DNR) has revoked the permit that allowed JHU experimenter Shreesh Mysore to carry out pointless attention deficit disorder (ADHD) experiments on owls.

PETA started a campaign against Mysore’s ADHD research, pointing out that the invasive experiments “contributed nothing to treatments for humans.”

The animal-welfare agency revealed what the owls were subjected to in the experiments, that took place allegedly without proper permits, between 2015 and 2018:

(the experiments involved) cutting into barn owls’ skulls, implanting electrodes in their brains, forcing the birds into plastic tubes or jackets so cramped that they can’t move their wings, clamping their eyes open, and bombarding them with sounds and lights for up to 12 hours.

PETA Vice President Shalin Gala issued a statement following the victory:

“Now that Mysore has literally lost his license to kill, owls will no longer die for experiments that leave them brain-damaged and suffering. This should end the atrocity on owls, and PETA is calling on NIH and Johns Hopkins to make it official.”

Another sick bastard creep hiding behind a medical degree to torture animals. What he did to those owls was criminal and benefited no one and nothing – not that that is even any excuse to torture living beings, with other ways of doing experiments that don’t utilize animals. And what the hell was wrong with Johns Hopkins that they allowed this in the first place???
Plenty of mentally sick criminals who used AK-15’s to kill school children to experiment on.

Anti-vivisecionist from a family of them. I would never want any procedure or drug derived from the suffering of innocent beings. Get educated, people! There is so much you do not know about your “health care.” Make INFORMED choices.

as long as the pharmas get funding for their “eperiments” they will turn a blind eye to the cruelties these poor animals endure for the sake of science.

Remember — these experiments are UNNECESSARY — they prove NOTHING — they ALL do it for the MONEY — the depraved cruelty, hate, disrespect for Animals is obvious.

Our country has enough sick minded idiots – we don’t need to be “importing” more of them. Send this brainless, heartless slug back to wherever he came from.

I often wonder about the mentality of people who can do such gruesome and barbaric things to animals in the name of research. People such as this Dr. Mengele (a doctor who did horrific and unnecessary experiments on Jews and other during the Holocaust) are especially loathsome.

Thank you PETA for finally saving remaining owls & may money-sucking J Hopkins University’s name forever be sullied by their shameless greed & unspeakable animal cruelty. ‘Fired’ their Mysore cohort? Too damned little, too damned late for animals who suffered a worse than Frankenstein torture.

Thank God he was STOPPED — the purpose of NEEDLESS research on Animals is to MAKE MONEY — the depraved cruelty, hate, disrespect for Animals is obvious.
