EXPOSED: Notoriously sadistic animal researcher now pumping sparrows full of sex hormones

Lattin has tormented and killed birds in cruel experiments since 2008. Her experiments has led to such banal 'discoveries' as 'birds do not like captivity' and 'birds think crude oil tastes icky.'

PETA: PETA has obtained new records revealing that serial bird killer Christine Lattin, now at Louisiana State University (LSU), has embarked on another installment of her continuing effort to rid the world of joy with a new round of pointless experiments that involve killing and dismembering birds…

In Lattin’s latest experiments, she will capture, band, and fit with digital ID transmitters house sparrows unfortunate enough to choose to breed in nest boxes at the LSU College of Agriculture. After she releases them, one group will be tormented with the sounds of a predator, such as a hawk, while the other will hear more pleasant sounds, such as nonpredator birds or frogs. In another experiment, she will catch dozens of sparrows and pump 20 males and 20 females with sex steroids for a week before running the same predator/nonpredator routine on them. These birds will endure the same fate as the others.

Lattin has tormented and killed birds in bizarre experiments since 2008. The mountain of bird carcasses left after past experiments has led to such banal “discoveries” as “birds do not like captivity” and “birds think crude oil tastes icky.” That her sadistic experiments have not contributed to the promotion of science, however, is apparently no matter to the Louisiana Board of Regents, which awarded her more than $117,000 to torment and kill 184 wild-caught sparrows over a three-year span that began in June 2019…

This is what passes for science, and it’s unfortunately in line with Lattin’s previous cruelty, which included feeding birds crude oil, wounding their legs, plucking large amounts of their feathers, and causing them stress and fear by confining them to cloth bags and giving them drugs that damage their adrenal glands… Lattin must not continue her reign of terror on wild birds. Killing these sensitive, trusting beings who have chosen to live in such close proximity to humans is unjust and wrong. Please, take action below and urge LSU to end her cruelty. SOURCE…
