Felines have a friend in their corner in James Cromwell.
The actor, who most recently starred as Dr. Arden on American Horror Story: Asylum, was arrested Thursday after he interrupted a University of Wisconsin System Board of Regents meeting to protest the school's experimentation on cats.
Cromwell entered the meeting carrying a large poster of a cat with a metal clamp implanted on its head, and shouted, "As many as 30 cats a year at UW have had holes drilled in their skulls … They are deafened, starved for days at a time and then decapitated. This is not science. This is torture. And it is criminal."
