Brown University was the target of an animal rights demonstration Sunday.

About a dozen people picketed Brown carrying signs saying “Stop Testing on Animals Now.”  The demonstration was organized by the group “In Defense of Animals.” Organizer Christen Baker says the animal experimentation going on at Brown and other universities is unnecessary.

"There are alternatives that need to be explored. They’re safer. They’re cheaper and they’re accurate."
