(ANIMAL RIGHTS) Recently, PETA released a video of a cruel animal testing practice at Washington University in St. Louis (WUSTL) called Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS).

Read on to find out more on Bob's generous offer to WUSTL and see how you can help put an end to this animal cruelty. — Global Animal
