Research Lab Animal Victims

– – This Sunday, May 30th was proclaimed “A National Day of Mourning for Animals in Laboratories,” specifically those animals that have died of human negligence.  Research laboratories were targeted in Nevada, Oregon, California, Kansas, Georgia, Florida, New Hampshire, Washington, and Washington, D.C.  where animals have died through dehydration, starvation, infection, being boiled alive, hyperthermia, and botched surgeries.  The labs cited were associated with both major U.S. universities and private corporations, and activist complaints have in some cases resulted in USDA citations.  Similar memorials have been held earlier in New York and Illinois.

Animal research under proper controls and supervision is valuable and at times necessary, but there is never an excuse for animal deaths because of human negligence.

    P.S.—if it ever comes out on DVD, you should rent “A Cold Night’s Death.” A TV movie, from 1973, starring Eli Wallach. Truly, a cult-classic!
