To whom it may concern, Realize that there are viable alternatives to harming animals for research that we must continue explore and use -- which would also help humans to be more humane. These research alternatives would also help spare needless animal suffering in the process. Ironically, due to advancements in technology there are already safer, faster and more reliable ways to test and research than using animals. In addition to chemical tests including the Neutral Red Bio-assay, there are computer and mathematical models, and also test-tube (in vitro) use of cell or tissue cultures; which are just some of the more reliable means of testing, as opposed to harming research animals. Yet even though most of us might also be shocked to learn of conscious animals live bodies being cut wide open with NO pain relief medication or anesthesia, it does continue to occur! Since animals feel pain as we do, one can only imagine the pain and horror they must endure through the use of vivisection, let alone while conscious and in pain. Although I also question how much research on animals really translates well to humans, the thought that these living beings called animals, must endure agonizing torture for the sake of science; is abhorrent to me. I feel laws must be strengthened to help better protect these innocent animals who are unable to give informed consent. Besides, who would consent to be cut open, eviscerated while alive, conscious and feeling every bit of it; if at all? How can this be ethical? Kind Regards, A. Neilson University Student.
Please sign and share! :'( This poor Kitty was decapitated after they were done torturing!!! And there are more! They are still doing it! :'( I hope many sign to end this Horror! We do not need to do this to help humans. With advancement in modern technology we can get more reliable research results by other means than harming these innocent animals anyway!!! I know this is hard to look at, but how else can we stop it. :'(
This past week in our University Psychology class discussion, this type of animal abuse for research experimentation came up, and I heard of some really horrendous cases of this kind of torture and spoke out against it. :'( There are modern ways to get better information than using animals like this. I hope my friends will help by signing this petition.
done...TY for posting...:'-(
Thank you too, Avi!
No animal should be subjected to such barbaric cruelty !!!
This is SO HEARTBREAKING! EVERY companion pet should be able to enjoy a long, healthy, happy and SAFE life as a valued member of a wonderful family who gives them the love, care, attention, affection, protection and RESPECT they so richly deserve. God bless ALL animals! xo xo xo xo xo xo.
why just the "companion pets"?? this is why there is no respect.....for animals. they are seen as convenience,food etc. it starts with US...we can stop this by respecting ALL animals...not just the ones you DON'T WANT TO EAT.......
This is my first time hearin about this tht colleges do this this is so sick. I feel so sry for these cats. Or if they use any other pet. Some mean n sick ppl out there. I would like 2 know y they r doin this in the first place.
They say it's to make computer parts for hearing cell phones better & for hearing aids, but year after year and hundreds and hundreds of dead cats and still going. They get lots of our tax money from the NIH so it will never stop unless there is public outcry to expose this corruption.
this is f*c*ing sick as hell i can't believe people would do such a thing or even to think about doing something like this is horrabile!!! im so sad,upset,sick and hurt by this!!!!!!!!!!!
basta con queste povere creature costrette a subire di tutto per businner(non ricordo come si scrive...scusate)...è ora che le persone riflettano su questo!!!
Absolutely disgusting, the cruelty is just barbaric and derves no use in human terms.
no do it to cruel useless humans
I would absolutely love to conduct these horrific experiments on the so-called scientists who routinely inflict unimaginable suffering on animals. And I'm sure I'm not alone. Anyone who could inflict such pain and anguish is in my humble opinion is twisted & sick & has a corrupted mind & has no place in our society. There is no valid reason for animal testing any longer. We have the technology that replaces this barbarism. Use it! and stop abusing animals to save a couple of bucks.
