MADISON (AP) - A judge has appointed a special prosecutor to determine whether to file criminal charges against nine UW-Madison researchers and officials responsible for experiments that killed sheep.
Dane County Circuit Court Judge Amy Smith appointed Madison lawyer David Geier to consider whether to file charges over experiments in which sheep were killed through decompression.
Animal rights groups, including People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, filed a petition seeking criminal charges against 14 UW-Madison employees. Smith found probable cause that nine of them violated the law directly or as party to a crime.
The petition came after Dane County District Attorney Brian Blanchard concluded the experiments likely violated Wisconsin law but said prosecution would not be a wise use of resources.
Kill a sheep, get prosecuted.
Kill a human in an abortuary, get $300 to $500.
>> over experiments in which sheep were killed through decompression.
Curious about the expected outcome...
I think this is going to be a baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahd thread!
When I first read this, I thought that some researcher from UW had relations with the sheep.

A solution for over-dried sweaters?
And how ironic, named after the author of the Constitution...all of the roads on the isthmus, downtown Madison, are named after signatories of the Constitution...a town that once revered the founding principles is now in communist hands. Decades of (liberal controlled) government schools has given us an electorate that chose our present circumstances.
One is tempted to assign prophet status to Yuri Bezmenov and Ayn Rand...but they were just people that grew up under communist rule and recognized the inevitabilities.
I thought it was the washing process, not the drying, that caused wool to shrink. I thought I saw somewhere (Lord knows where) that the fibers aren’t smooth so they “knit” together during agitation. Either way, baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad idea.
They decompress. Progressives tell me that's what you do after a stressful expreience, decompress. In Madison that means hit the bars, but that's OK too, just don't get in a car. Ride a sheep home.
UW out of Dane County! UW out of Dane County!
United, the nutburgers will never be defeated!
This is insane.
Exactly my thoughts. Uw-Madison is a hell hole for unborn babies, but the idiots at PETA worry about sheep.
Must not be an official testing lab. They use animals to test all kinds of things. Why is this different?
Thank you for the ping.
