Annual report outlines terrible suffering in laboratories

Posted on the 13th March 2018

Yesterday (Monday 12th March) saw the publication of the 2016 annual report from the Home Office unit that regulates animal experiments in the UK. The report described 45 instances of ‘non-compliance’ involving mice, monkeys, rats and birds. Some animals starved to death, others died from a lack of water and some died because of inadequate humidity.

Each year the annual report outlines the terrible suffering and deaths of animals in laboratories; each animal is one who is capable of feeling positive emotions, as well as pain, distress and fear. As well as causing terrible suffering to animals, these experiments are bad science because they do not provide data which can be reliably applied to humans. So animal experiments not only harm animals, they also harm people.
