Several petitions concerning the abhorrent abuse of baby monkeys were available all through this year. PeTA had brought to light the continued cruelty towards baby monkeys who were taken away from their mothers for experimentation. These studies had been going on for decades with no new information being found during the last decade.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) have declared an end to these atrocious experiments, this news being confirmed by congressman Brendan Boyle.

PeTA is now discussing with the NIH when and where the monkeys will be released and retired.

You can read more and sign the petition on retiring the monkeys here:

Fighting Hamsters?

Bildschirmfoto 2015-05-08 um 15.29.22

Many have followed last week´s news on the Fight of the Century, millions have watched it. Two people in a boxing ring, being paid millions to fight each other. It is clear that both were in the ring on their own accord.

But when human beings inject animals with drugs to make them aggressive and then forcing them to fight there is no free will involved. These beings are being tortured.

“For nearly two decades, experimenters from the Department of Psychology at Northeastern University in Boston have been injecting hamsters with anabolic-androgenic steroids and other aggression-promoting drugs and then forcing them to fight each other. Since 1996, the experimenters have injected hundreds of animals with steroids, cocaine, and other substances, sometimes drilling into their skulls and injecting the drugs straight into their brains.”

What Do Taxes Have to Do With Animal Abuse?

Bildschirmfoto 2015-04-16 um 09.52.00

Many important projects are funded with taxes: streets and parks, schools and universities, emergency clinics and  … experiments on animals. You can argue that some experiments are necessary to save human lives, but once you learn more about these experiments you will most certainly come to the conclusion that this is not what you want to pay for.

“Just in time for tax week, the White Coat Waste Movement has launched an explosive new exposé from Executive Producer Glenn Beck against the government’s $12 billion+ forced taxpayer-funded animal experimentation budget. And we’re airing it on national cable TV right now!

Follow this link to watch our unprecedented new investigation from Executive Producer Glenn Beck. See what the taxpayer-funded animal abusers don’t want you to know about.

For animal experimenters, tax day is even better than Christmas Day. Every April 15, we’re forced to pay over $12 billion in taxes for painful and worthless government animal experiments on dogs, cats, primates, and other animals.”

Must Beauty and Cosmetics Equal Animal Torture? No!

Screen Shot 2015-04-08 at 3.24.50 AM

More and more countries are rethinking their policies on testing products, whether old or new ones, on animals. This is leading to changes in the law – luckily in favor of the animals. The European Union – all 28 countries – has banned testing on animals for cosmetics. And more are following suit.

“New Zealand just became the first Australasian country to ban cosmetics animal testing. Earlier this week, an amendment to the Animal Welfare Act was passed, reflecting the nation’s desire for humane beauty products.”

Do Experiments Get Better with Each Abuse?

Photo: PeTA

Photo: PeTA

Why repeat experiments for decades even though these have been already dissected, researched and studied from every angle possible? Who is behind these inhumane doings? And who pays for them? The only question easily answerable is the last one: tax payers pay for these atrocious doings.

“For decades, an experimenter at the National Institutes of Health named Stephen Suomi has been conducting cruel psychological experiments on baby monkeys. In these experiments, monkeys are bred to be prone to depression and other mental illnesses. Every year, dozens of infant monkeys are torn away from their mothers at birth and isolated in tiny cages. They are then subjected to years of painful and terrifying experiments in order to worsen their symptoms of mental illness and measure the severity of their psychological trauma.

Today, December 16, is Stephen Suomi’s birthday. It hardly seems right that the man responsible for traumatizing baby monkeys starting on the day they’re born should be able to celebrate his own birthday without being reminded of the suffering he causes.We’re asking you to take a few minutes to call Suomi’s office and politely demand that these barbaric experiments be put to an end.”

Mice Are Cute and Rats Are Vile – Really?

Bildschirmfoto 2014-12-16 um 09.01.41

Most people will say cats, dogs and even mice are cute animals, and would not purposely hurt them. But rats? These intelligent, but seemingly vile animals seem to have no lobby, hardly any lovers, not even in the “animal lover community”. Rodents are considered pests and therefore, they are “exterminated”, “eradicated “and “extinguished” wherever and whenever possible. Nobody says “killed”, “murdered” or “abused” when talking about bringing death to these animals. Many studies have proven, though, that mice, rats and other rodents have many traits and abilities making them special and worthy to be treated well, just like every being should be treated.

“PETA’s latest eyewitness investigation, at Willards Rodent Factory, a breeding warehouse, and Jurassic Pets LLC, a pet store in Colorado, revealed horrific conditions, systematic neglect, and the pervasive suffering of thousands of animals. Witnesses found animals languishing and dying in cramped, putrid enclosures filled with days’ or weeks’ worth of feces—often with the full knowledge of the owners and management. Based on PETA’s evidence, the Thornton, Colorado, Police Department executed a search warrant at Jurassic Pets that allowed them to rescue some of the mammals, reptiles, and amphibians there.

Despite having extensive evidence of persistent, widespread cruelty to animals for more than two months, the Adams County, Colorado, Sheriff’s Office (ACSO) has not helped the thousands of animals at Willards Rodent Factory,”

Animals in Labs = Animals in Torture Chambers

As long as there are legally binding regulations that require animals to suffer in labs it is crucial to at least not add any further cruelty to their plight. But the agencies who are supposed to enforce these supervisions are not following through.

“Despite violating the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) again and again, many animal research facilities face few consequences. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), charged with enforcing the AWA, must take stronger action.

The Santa Cruz Biotechnology (SCBT) animal research facility has too long a history of alleged and actual Animal Welfare Act (AWA) violations, resulting in needless additional pain for animals already suffering in labs. For years, NEAVS has called on the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), charged with enforcing the AWA, to revoke the lab’s license. We would also like to thank our supporters for writing letters. But business continues as usual.”

Good News: Seventh Generation Got the Message

It is clear that through social media, petitions, e-mails and other forms of communication companies feel the pressure of the consumers and are able to react fast. So adding your voice to a petition, writing an e-mail or picking up the phone makes a difference – for many animals in this case.

“After receiving tens of thousands of calls and e-mails and after 85,000 angry consumers signed our petition, Seventh Generation now understands the importance of animal-protection issues to consumers, and it has cleaned up its act! The company reversed course and signed on to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine’s letter to Congress acknowledging that animal tests are “slow, unreliable, and expensive” and calling for non-animal methods and strategies to be used first and foremost, and it has committed to advocating for this principle in all of its lobbying efforts.”

The Ugly Side of Beauty

Photo:PeTA

Photo:PeTA

The European Union banned all testing on animals for cosmetics. People thought this was the beginning of the end to all animal testing. Sadly, with the opening of new markets, mostly those in China, it seems to be the end of this beginning. Several companies have gone back to torturing animals for beauty´s sake – and to make more money.

“There’s nothing beautiful about dripping chemicals into gentle rabbits’ eyes or rubbing substances onto their abraded skin—yet cosmetics companies such as Estée Lauder and Revlon are paying to have it done anyway.

After more than 20 years of operating cruelty-free, these companies are paying for archaic product tests that poison and kill rabbits, mice, guinea pigs, and other animals, in order to sell their products in China. It’s a disappointing backslide into cruel testing policies—and one that Estée Lauder and Revlon made in secret, without informing their customers about the change.”
