It is both amusing and pathetic to read the kind of statements that the research community is forced to make in order to keep alive the fast-collapsing notion that experimental research on animals can help people. Since the new anti-vivisectionist movement, which I am proud to represent, is demonstrating that animal experimentation is a scientific fraud, the research community is fighting back by saying now that animals help people and that people help animals. The statement that medical doctors and veterinarians should work together is part of the madness of the vivisectionist mentality, which refuses to accept the fact that quadrupeds (animals)

About 100 animal rights demonstrators urged a boycott of the Los Angeles Zoo and said picketing of the Griffith Park facility will continue until zoo officials agree not to sell animals to research laboratories. Curator Michael Crotty said no zoo primate has been sold to a research laboratory because no lab has accepted the zoo's conditions that the "surplus" animals be used only for breeding or display, not for operations or experiments.

I must express my dismay over "TV 'Adver-torial' Makes Fur Fly," by Greg Braxton (May 24). I am 100% against vivisection and applaud the article itself. But, as it points out, many TV stations are refusing to run Javier Burgos' commercial because viewing these animals in such distress is too upsetting for many people. An article with no pictures would have been sufficient. Imagine my surprise in perusing leisurely through each section of the paper and coming suddenly upon the picture of the cat (almost exactly like mine at home)

About "TV 'Adver-torial' Makes Fur Fly" (Greg Braxton, May 24), on Students United Protesting Research on Sentient Subjects (SUPRESS) and its antivivisection commercial: It's amazing how many people are uninformed about vivisection. This is such an important issue and yet the laboratories strive to keep their activities secret. Only by hiding can they continue their mass torture and slaughter. Does anyone in media-savvy Los Angeles still fall for the "we-have-a-responsibility-to-the-public" line handed out by Robert Blagman, local sales manager of KCOP Channel 13 (which refused to broadcast the commercial)

Urging people to boycott the San Diego Zoo and waving poster-sized pictures of gruesome animal experiments, about 100 people marched through Balboa Park Sunday to protest the sale of zoo animals to research laboratories. The protest was a collaboration of the San Diego chapter of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the International Primate Protection League and the Pasadena-based SUPPRESS (Students United Protesting Painful Research Experiments on Sentient Subjects).

Speaking just above a whisper from his wheelchair in a Compton courtroom, Richard Bautista, the 14-year-old who was shot on the Harbor Freeway two years ago as he returned home from a Dodger game, faced the man who left him paralyzed. "I pray for you every night," said the former altar boy. "That you find God in your heart. And I pray that you find love in your heart." The defendant, Leo Javier Burgos, 19, cocked his head, and listened alertly to what his young victim had to say.
