Dr. Jane Goodall: Animal Experiments Are 'Morally Wrong and Unacceptable'
THE STORY OF BRITCHES
Britches, a Stump-tailed Macaque monkey born into a breeding colony at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) in March
1985, was removed from his mother at birth, had his eyelids sewn shut,
and had an electronic sonar device attached to his head as part of a
3-year sensory-deprivation study involving 24 infant monkeys.
Acting on a tip from a student, the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) removed Britches from the UCR laboratory on April 20, 1985, when he was 5 weeks old - along with 467 mice, cats, opossums, pigeons, rabbits, and rats - during a raid upon the laboratory. The ALF took footage of the raid and of Britches' condition when they found him, passing it anonymously to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), who used it as the basis of their film, Britches. A similar film was released by PETA a year earlier titled Unnecessary Fuss.
According to Science Magazine
reporting on the Riverside raid, PETA was a "mouthpiece for the
As a result of the ensuing publicity, 8 of the 17 studies interrupted by the raid were not restarted, and the university stopped allowing baby monkeys' eyes to be sewn shut.
The NIH conducted an 8-month long investigation of the animal care program at UC-Riverside and concluded it was an "appropriate animal care program" and that no corrective action was necessary. source
13.04.2021 This is Lynx. Today she is 15 years old. Lynx, like all other monkeys at Karolinska Institute, have never celebrated their birthday in freedom. As a 3-year-old, she moved to Sweden from a pet breeding and has since endured endless torture and horror.
An ordinary day can be described like this:′′ Sore right thighs, butt. Bitter wound on the tail. Excited. Wounds on both sides abdominal. Bit mark belly. Cold hands / feet. Throwback. Extremely stressed, pulse 236 stroke / minute. Sore face. New wound on the tail."
Karolinska Institute has refused to allow the monkeys to retire and rehome, as they did with the dogs that we noticed some time ago and that they rather murdered than rehomed. My thoughts are writing to Auschwitz chief physician Mengele who selected prisoners to experiment on. Those who did not die from the experiments were sent to the gas chamber when he was done. This was done, just as the Karolinska Institute does today in 2021, in the name of science.Lynx life is almost over. Doesn't she, Grizzly, Hyena, Nanuq, Fox and all other experimental animals deserve to own their own body? To live in an environment where she doesn't have to be afraid, avoid the hard roof of glove-covered hands around the neck and arms, avoid asking her perpetrator daily for mercy and to be ignored by the same?April 24th is the Day of Testimony. Spend a little while to stand up for all these lives silenced at Karolinska Institute and for those who are still calling for help. We still have the chance to do it right. source
In this beagle farm, about 2000 #beagles are produced every single year
".. These beagles are sold to primarily laboratories, but also to hunters and singular breeders.
The building in the back holds 250 female beagles captive, who's job it is to create 8 to 10 puppies for every pregnancy. Their babies will then be taken away from them to be grown inside these cages, or sold at the young age of 3 months to laboratories directly.
We did not manage to get footage from the conditions inside of the reproduction building, but we suspect it is done in similar fashion to pig farming.
The farm is protected with high fences, barbed wires, infrared cameras, and alarm systems. The company in charge of their security is called @securitasfrance. Contact them to let them know they are supporting an unethical and disgusting business and should be ashamed to do so." - François Carreau

Securitas France Supports Animal Cruelty
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)

2016 - David Attenborough calls for end to 'cruel' brain tests on primates by neuroscientists
2019 - Young beagles are being used for cruel animal experiments and left to die in a German laboratory working for a Swiss pharma firm, says the report.
2019 - A German lab where undercover animal activists filmed monkeys screaming in pain while strapped in metal harnesses is being shut down.
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
Jean-Pierre Garner, the head of GSK (GlaxoSmithKline) has condemned animal rights activists as 'despicable cowards'.
These images do nothing to you little man Jean-Pierre, but to most people they do. To call them all despicable cowards because they have a heart is like Satan telling Jesus he is the devil.
The company has been the center of numerous false advertising claims, fraud, drug safety , bribery, and violation of anti-trust laws. source
WHY ANIMAL TESTS ARE ALWAYS APPROVED
There are hardly any people on all those committees who really stand up for the rights of animals.
The annual reports of KU Leuven show that in 2018 and 2019 100% of all animal experiments were approved.4 "The composition of the ethics committees largely explains why all those animal experiments are approved," says Hochmuth. "They are colleagues who have to assess each other's requests. This does lead to discussion but rarely to disapproval. There are hardly any people on all those committees who really stand up for the rights of animals. " read more (Animal Rights)
2020 These Beauty Brands Are Still Tested on Animals
You may have assumed that most major cosmetics companies were on board with alternatives to cruelty to animals, but there are some that still pay to poison and kill. It isn't always easy to know which brands don't test on animals.
For instance, L'Oréal, which doesn't test on animals in the United States, pays for deadly testing in China, where archaic and painful experiments on animals are required for cosmetics, read more, source
ANIMALS TESTING - AN OUTDATED CULTURE
And fact is, 92% of experimental drugs that are safe and effective in animals fail in human clinical trials because they are too dangerous or don't work.
We have abused every living creature in every way.
Reactions on animals of toxic substances that will rarely be assimilated to humans!
A poor rat humiliated and raped on the basis of false criteria, but stubbornly carried out to satisfy exorbitant economic income, is not the solution to our problems.
What matters for a vivisectionist is not the search for a cure, but will be interested in prestige and money.
You can choose to favor alternative research that does not use animals, research involving similar and non-opposing DNA investigations.
YOU CAN CHOOSE THE RIGHT DIRECTION !!!
Never support ANIMAL TESTING.

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.

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.

#Veganism not just a diet, it's a it's a cruelty-free Lifestyle. Philosophy of non-violence..
Vegans boycott all animal products like meat, milk, egg, leather, wool, Silk, honey, fur, Ivory Mink eyelashes, anything that comes from caging, torturing and killing animals.
Vegans boycott all forms of animals slavery like Circus, zoo, seaworld, no elephant ride, no horse ride, not buy stuff from companies that use load animals..
No animal slavery.
Veganism is complete boycott of products and services that enslave, use, experiment and kills animals.

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?
