Target: Richard Armstrong, Director, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
Goal: Shut down the “art” displays of dogs squaring off to fight and reptiles killing each other.
Animal welfare advocates are in an uproar over animal cruelty displays at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City. One display includes live reptiles and insects “devouring each other” and the other shows dogs tethered to non-motorized treadmills preparing to fight. The dogs are facing one another in a scenario often used to train dogs for fighting. The Guggenheim is being accused of animal cruelty for hosting these exhibits.
