Slate on Pepper: Stolen for Research
JUNE 2, 2009
Daniel Engber, senior editor at Slate , has posted the first of a five-part series about animals used for research. A Dalmatian, stolen and sold for research, she was likely terrified and probably in enormous pain when she was killed, a couple of weeks after she was taken. Her death on an operating table in the Bronx would help animal welfare advocates break a long-standing stalemate in Congress and push through the most significant animal-protection bill in American history.
