Transcript of “Double Trouble” at UW Madison

My Journey to End Animal Experimentation
"Double Trouble"
Double Trouble’s health was rapidly declining and the wounds around the posts were infected and not healing
Experiment was deemed a “complete failure” and she was killed
After death scientists cut off her head to examine further into her brain

“Double Trouble” at UW Madison
For decades countless cats have been contained, cut into, tormented, and later killed
Double Trouble was an orange Tabby cat that was a victim of horrific tests
Subjected to several surgeries on her ears, brain, and skull

Second surgery toxic substances were injected into ears to deafen her and electrical devices were implanted in her ears as well
