We make them suffer…
Experiments on animals in the name of science… Corporations perform and fund animal testing to make for us cosmetics, drugs and other products…
And we buy, consume, we don’t care… we don’t ask.. we don’t see… We are all part of the problem cause we give them the right to subject animals to this cruel practice, when we buy their products… So let’s continue! cause we care only for ourself and for our profit don’t we? … well done humanity!
We are civilized, aren’t we?
Did you know that animal experiments include:
- injecting or force feeding animals with potentially harmful substances
- exposing animals to radiation
- surgically removing animals’ organs or tissues to deliberately cause damage
- forcing animals to inhale toxic gases
- subjecting animals to frightening situations to create anxiety and depression.
Do you agree with all that suffering?
Did you know:
Only vertebrate animals (mammals, birds, fish and amphibians) and some invertebrates such as octopuses are defined as ‘animals’ by European legislation governing animal experiments. Shockingly, in the USA rats, mice, fish, amphibians and birds are not defined as animals under animal experiments regulations. That means no legal permission to experiment on them is needed and they are not included in any statistics.
Animals used in experiments are usually bred for this purpose by the laboratory or in breeding facilities. It’s a cruel, multi-million dollar industry. Cruelty Free International believes that all animals are equally important. A dog bred for research is still a dog who could otherwise live a happy life in a loving home.
Some monkeys are still trapped in the wild in Africa, Asia and South America to be used in experiments or imprisoned in breeding facilities. Their children are exported to laboratories around the world. The use of wild-caught monkeys in experiments is generally banned in Europe but is allowed elsewhere.
Horses and other animals such as cows, sheep and pigs are often supplied by dealers and may originate from racing stables or farms for use in animal experiments. The rules preventing the use of stray companion animals like dogs and cats vary from country to country.
In the end we want to be called “humans”… are we?
