World Week for Animals in Laboratories
ARC Speaker Series: Undercover Investigator Michele Rokke
Sunday, April 19, 3:00 pm, ARC / Fast & Furless, 2615 E. Franklin Ave., Minneapolis
Michele Rokke began working as an undercover investigator for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals in 1994. Her first assignment was to investigate allegations of animal cruelty at a horse ranch in North Dakota. She worked undercover at numerous facilities, including the Boys Town National Research Hospital, various chicken farms, and, most notably, Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS), where she spent eight months investigating animal cruelty.
Michele will speak about her experience working as an undercover investigator and the day-to-day life of animals in laboratories. She has a unique perspective based on her first-hand experience working directly with animals in labs.
This event is free and open to the public, but space is limited so come early for seating.
