Michele Rokke Speaks at ARC
Michele Rokke began working for PETA in 1994 as an undercover investigator. Her first assignment was to investigate allegations of cruelty at a horse ranch in North Dakota. After that she worked undercover at numerous facilities, including Boys Town National Research Hospital, various chicken farms, and, most notably, Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS), where she spent eight months investigating. HLS has been the target of a global campaign aimed at shutting them down because of the way animals are treated in its facilities. Michele spoke about her experience as an undercover investigator and shared what day-to-day life is like for animals in laboratories. You can watch an excerpt from her talk on YouTube.
