Animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way.

Monkeys Retired From Experiments

Written by PETA | June 20, 2011

After a three-year PETA India campaign, one of India’s top medical schools, the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), has agreed to let six monkeys retire to live out the rest of their lives in a sanctuary. The monkeys have been confined to tiny, filthy wire cages in AIIMS’ laboratory for up to a decade.
 

An undercover investigation of AIIMS showed that animals were incarcerated in barren wire cages, suffering from health problems, not receiving adequate medical treatment, and being taunted by employees.

 
PETA India’s campaign received an outpouring of high-profile support from the likes of Pamela Anderson, Indian celebrities Cyrus Broacha and Celina Jaitly, and former Indian health minister Shatrughan Sinha.

AIIMS has also informed PETA India that it is considering retiring even more monkeys. In the meantime, the remaining monkeys have been moved to more spacious runs and group housing, and AIIMS has halted all experiments on monkeys until it improves conditions further. PETA India has offered to work with AIIMS to implement more animal welfare improvements and to explore modern testing methods in order to replace all experiments on animals.

    Apparently some of you didn’t read the article – they DID stop, and, with PETA’s input, are re-evaluating thier expermintation program. Good for them. Hopefully they will leave animal experimentation behind for good.

    Sickening to watch but necessary to inform many people who do not realise the horrors, indignaties & suffering that animals endure in the name of medical research & it’s all for nothing except pain & death for the animals & big money for the breeders & the laboratories. I beg everyone to only support charities that do not test on animals

    This is disgusting. I hate to see animals treated badly and would like to see the abolishment of animal experimentation. What right do humans have to make their lives misery?
