People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals somehow got list of about 13,000 Proctor & Gamble phone numbers and in July left all of them a voice mail message recorded by Chrissie Hynde.
In the voice mail message, Hynde said,
Don’t think these tests [performed by P&G-owned Iams] are necessary or required by law. They aren’t. Other companies test in other ways.
For some reason, Hynde left out her final solution to the animal testing problem,
The last resort is for someone to go in and actually take these guys out. Maybe it will have to be an out-and-out assassination. When no one will listen anymore, then individuals have to take the law into their own hands and it can get very ugly.
And trust me — Hynde and PETA are certainly experts when it comes to ugliness, both moral and otherwise.
