Hear from Johnathon Byrne, a British businessman and animal advocate who has filed a lawsuit against Texas A&M University for how they treated him when he came to protest the canine muscular dystrophy dog lab at the school.

A reprise of our 2018 interview, Byrne tells Emil Guillermo why it was important to make the trip from the UK to Texas A&M to fight the cruel and useless experiments on dogs.


UPDATE: See what happened at Texas A&M when Byrne went to protest the wasteful dog experiments.



As a muscular dystrophy patient, Byrne feels it's immoral to subject dogs to the disease when any findings from the research have yet to benefit humans in any meaningful way.

Byrne, a 27-year-old university student and business owner, has taken a pro-active approach to his condition, shunning any drugs and switching to a vegan diet, which he says has greatly improved his quality of life.
