AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - Dozens of protestors chanted and held signs outside Georgia Regents University's health sciences campus, two days after a Humane Society investigation revealed testing being done on dogs for dental implant research.
"Honestly, it's just not okay," said Dante Steele, a student at the school. "I just had to be here."
Steele and her friend, Nathan Moorehead, are study at the school's Summerville campus, and were part of the protest. Steele said she was shocked to learn of the allegations made by the Humane Society.
"I knew about this two days ago when everyone else did," she explained. "It was an enormous shock. I honestly didn't know how to react."
Protestors promise this is just the beginning, and they'll keep coming back until changes are made.
