World Week for Animals in Laboratories - April 20 - 26, 2014
How are you participating? Get in touch with one of these campaigns:
The BUAV went undercover at MSD Animal
Health(UK) for 8 months in 2013.
During our 8 month investigation, 92 beagle puppies, 10 adult nursing female beagles, at least 15 kittens and an unknown number of rabbits, calves and chickens were killed at the facility. But these cats and dogs never experienced the love of a human family or the joys of playing outside. They never saw the sky, breathed fresh air or felt the grass beneath their feet. Born to die for the research industry, their lives were cruelly cut short at just a few weeks old.
Petition to the Senate of UBC submitted today - over 21,600 signatures asking
asking for a ban on the 2 most invasive and painful tests done on animal --
74,641 animals in 2012.

Currently asking University of Washington to stop inserting tubes into the
throats of pigs for paramedic training, when simulated and human-based
methods are available and used elsewhere.
