Longtime animal advocate and award-winning actor James Cromwell was arrested yesterday for disorderly conduct during a protest at Texas A&M University (TAMU).

Cromwell was apprehended inside the University’s Board of Regents meeting during which he and another man called on the school to shut down the TAMU laboratory; a controversial and cruel place where golden retrievers and other dogs who were bred to have canine muscular dystrophy struggle to walk, swallow, and even breathe.

“Texas A&M continues to torment golden retrievers and other dogs, even though decades of these experiments have not led to a cure for humans with muscular dystrophy,” Cromwell said in a statement. “It’s time to let the dogs out. PETA and I want them released to good homes where they can live out the rest of their lives in peace.”

Earlier this year, PETA released video footage of the appallingly thin dogs caged in a laboratory. Long ropes of saliva hung from the mouths of those whose jaw muscles had weakened. Even balancing was difficult.

Dogs who did not have the disease but carried the MD gene were used for breeding. Deprived of loving homes, the poor animals frantically paced across the slatted floors and bit the bars of the small cages in frustration.

Texas A&M University stopped breeding dogs for canine muscular dystrophy experiments; but their experiments continue even after pressure to stop from 500 physicians, many scientists, those with muscular dystrophy, and PETA.

Please join James Cromwell by urging Texas A&M University to close its dog laboratory and release all of its dogs to good homes. Ask them to redirect their resources to humane research methods, HERE!
