1. PETA drove the anti-experiment message home to National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins: Our supporters brought a monkey statue to his front door. It was emblazoned with more than 179,000 signatures from folks who’ve joined our push to stop government-funded fright tests on primates.
  2. PETA Vice President Dr. Alka Chandna sets the record straight about NIH-funded animal experiments at foreign laboratories—which can amount to torture, as the tests conducted overseas are often so twisted that they’d be illegal in the U.S.
  3. Eli Lilly is in hot water once again. As part of our vocal campaign urging the Prozac maker to ban the forced swim test, PETA has exposed the company’s lengthy history of deadly, misguided animal tests as well as its practice of apparently contracting with other laboratories to abuse and kill animals in experiments.
  4. We’re breaking down why sepsis experiments on animals fail all species and why it’s high time for regulators to adopt our Research Modernization Deal and embrace human-relevant approaches to health studies.
  5. We’ve uncovered flagrant and ongoing animal welfare violations in Brown University laboratories—including starvation and dehydration deaths of mice, failure to euthanize suffering animals in a timely manner, and deviation from approved experimental protocols. Now, we’re urging the school’s president to implement a zero-tolerance policy for such violations, before more animals die at the hands of incompetent experimenters.
