Emmy winner and Oscar nominee James Cromwell was arrested during a PETA protest at Texas A&M University’s (TAMU) Board of Regents meeting on Thursday while calling on the school to shut down the TAMU laboratory where golden retrievers and other dogs who were bred to have canine muscular dystrophy struggle to walk, swallow, and even breathe.

“Texas A&M continues to torment golden retrievers and other dogs, even though decades of these experiments have not led to a cure for humans with muscular dystrophy,” says Cromwell. “It’s time to let the dogs out, and my friends at PETA and I want them released to good homes where they can live out the rest of their lives in peace.”

Under pressure from 500 physicians, many scientists, people with muscular dystrophy, and PETA, TAMU recently stopped breeding dogs for canine muscular dystrophy experiments — but its experiments continue.
