Nina Fodale on the Causes website is calling for a full investigation into the animal testing that is carried out at MSD Animal Health in the UK having watched the video below:
March 2, 2014, the Daily Mail reported on this horrific story of kittens and puppies involved in animal testing in the UK. The video shows puppies and kittens being taken from their mothers and killed. They can be heard screaming in terror while they are restrained by the research staff. They are later killed and then dissected. The bodies are thrown into a bin in the same way you would throw away some waste food in the kitchen.
The callousness of the operation is highlighted when one employee says,
“That’s you done, you can go into our bin.” (you will hear other callous and brutally insensitive – almost sinister – words spoken)
The puppies and kittens are as young as 4 weeks of age. The mothers are also killed.
The video was filmed by an investigator (“Susie”) who worked undercover at the facility for 8 months. The investigator was working on behalf of British Union for Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV).
The laboratory is owned by the pharmaceutical giant Merck Sharp & Dohme.
The laboratory, MSD, states that they’re here to animal testing regulations and did not break any laws.
Comment: there are people who approve of animal testing because it benefits humankind. There are people who detest it. The former believe that animals are creatures who are secondary to the primary animal on the planet namely us. These people see animals as “it”, they are objects to be used.
To the latter, humans are also animals and animals are nonhuman animals so ultimately we are all very similar doing our best to survive under, often, difficult circumstances on a planet that is being damaged by human activity. To people who detest animal testing, the deliberate abuse of one animal for the benefit of another seems immoral.
If MSD say they are not breaking the law, the law is bloody stupid.
