This week the nerds are joined by Kevin Folta once again he has recently being spreading awareness of PETA’s latest campaign of harassment. Dr Christine Lattin is a postdoc researcher at Yale, her work focuses on how stress can effect behaviour in birds. She is also trying to develop new methods to reduce having to kill these birds. PETA have decided that anyone working with live animals should be targeted for harassment. PETA members have surrounded venues where Dr Lattin is talking and engaged in a campaign of hate mail and sharing her families address.

  1. Good. She should be harassed. Why should my tax money go to fund torturing songbirds? I’m sick of these white coat welfare recipients using our tax money for the outdated animal model. They should go after the perverts sexually abusing animals to study female sexual dysfunction. The NIH is crazy to give grant money to scientists who molest rats in order to understand human female arousal. Disgusting!
