MADISON, WIS. (AP) - Actor James Cromwell has been charged with a civil ordinance violation for allegedly disrupting a university meeting in Madison to protest animal testing.
The violations are not criminal charges but carry fines of up to $1,000.
The two held large signs showing a cat with metal implanted in its head at a UW-Madison lab, while shouting about the treatment of cats.
Cromwell was nominated for an Academy Award for the 1995 film “Babe.” Other credits include “L.A. Confidential,” “The Green Mile” and “The Artist.”
