Did you know that in 2017, 24 million laboratory animals were traumatized, tortured, made sick, poisoned, starved to death and eventually killed in cruel experiments or simply killed as unnecessary or inappropriate across the European Union? Less than half of that was actually used in animal experiments. The other 14 million animals were "killed in stock." These animals were bred, but not used because they were redundant or because they did not have the desired genetic traits for which the test subjects wanted to use them. (source)

In 2017 almost 10 million animal tests were conducted in Europe. - Animal Rights
According to the latest figures, almost 24 million test animals were killed in the EU in 2017.
Animal experiments can be eliminated without substitution, because human data have long been available, or because their results are completely irrelevant to human health. No less than 87.5% of biomedical research is inefficient and wasteful, says Professor Michael Bracken.
Dr. Frances Cheng (source) More than 95 percent of drugs tested successfully on animals end up failing in humans. I dissected and experimented on animals and advocated for their use for more than a decade before I learned, through my own doctoral research, that animal "models" do not reflect human physiology. Critics of animal use are painted as unscientific, as extreme, or as bullies for objecting to even the most abhorrent of experiments. But experimenters' most despicable act is to pretend to be victims when their work is criticized. See full interview at: lockwoodfilm.com/test-subjects
A Monkey Dreaming and Happy
Happy Monkeys Captured and Sold
Sold Monkeys Tortured Daily and Killed
Whoever justifies this, is of demonic nature. There is no excuse.
They are aware where they are, that they cannot move, only more pain awaits them, alone, away from their tribe and family members. Yes, there are alternatives for animal testing. The monkeys do not dream happy dreams anymore. They have nightmares, and when they wake up, they are aware where they are, that they cannot move, only more pain awaits them, alone, away from their tribe and family members. Yes, there are alternatives for animal testing.
What if the whole system is brainwashing us to Be Cruel murderers and slave mongers.
1. On average 200 million land animals are killed for food around the world every day. Including wild-caught and farmed fishes, we get a total closer to 3 billion animals killed daily. That comes out to 72 billion land animals and over 1.2 trillion aquatic animals killed for food around the world every year. Just for MILK, EGG, MEAT. Source:
2. Animals are subjected to cruel rape(artificial insemination), forced breeding, caging, infanticide for milk/egg, finally murder for meat when milk/egg production stops. Source
3. PLANTS ARE KILLED MORE because of eating meat, milk and egg (coz) cattle and poultry eat 50 times more plants than humans per day.
(80 % agriculture produce is used to feed around 70 billion animals cruelly caged and killed for 7 billion humans annually.) Source 1, source 2, source 3
4. Plucking few fruits, vegetables, grains n leaves dont kill plants.
5. We should stop killing trees/plants to build building/factories n kill trees n creatures living there.

HSUS Affiliated Chimp Sanctuary Sues Former Carers - GoFundMe appeal
My name is Lindsay Vanderhoogt and my friend Crystal Alba and I are being sued by our former employer, Project Chimps, for raising awareness of chimp welfare issues currently taking place at the sanctuary. Please support our legal fight to advocate for the chimpanzee residents at Project Chimps by contributing to our GoFundMe campaign here: https://gf.me/u/x63cux.
Please share this post widely to spread the word. Together we can be a voice for the voiceless.
HSUS's decision to sue two credible whistleblowers who exposed animal cruelty at its Project Chimps sanctuary (after attempting to effect change from within) is having a chilling effect on speech. A reporter told me that people witnessing animal abuse at other institutions are now afraid to come forward out of fear of HSUS-style retaliation.
The whistleblowers who HSUS is suing are just 2 of 22 employees who sent a letter to the board of directors sounding the alarm about the mistreatment of the chimps. For the sake of the chimps, the whistleblowers who had nothing to gain by coming forward, the many other employees at Project Chimps who have spoken out, and the witnesses to animal cruelty who have been silenced due to HSUS's lawsuit, we must demand that HSUS (which runs Project Chimps) drop this outrageous lawsuit. Please share.

A word from Donny Moss: As you may know, The Humane Society of the United States is suing two of the 22 individuals who came forward with credible, well documented reports of animal mistreatment at Project Chimps, its chimpanzee sanctuary in Georgia. It was only after they attempted to effect change from within that they blew the whistle with this website, https://helpthechimps.org. By suing whistleblowers, HSUS is engaging in the same intimidation tactics that the animal agriculture industry uses against us.
I believe the whistleblowers not only because of the evidence they have provided, but also because many of their complaints were validated by a third party sanctuary accrediting organization that conducted an inspection. In addition, I've seen with my own eyes how poorly HSUS is treating the chimps at its other sanctuary in Liberia, in spite of raising millions of dollars to improve their care.
Over the past couple of weeks, I have begun to speak out on behalf of the whistleblowers and the chimps, and I will continue to do so until HSUS drops the lawsuit and demonstrates that it has improved animal care at the sanctuary. Here's my first article.
A few days ago, I received an email from the co-chair of HSUS's board of directors, Susan Atherton, dismissing my concerns. How can we expect HSUS to protect animals when the person at the helm is proudly wearing their fur and skin?
