5 Ways PETA Is Helping Animals in Laboratories This Week
- PETA has obtained and analyzed documents revealing that in the midst of the global pandemic, thousands of laboratory-bound monkeys were transported in trucks crisscrossing the U.S. without legally mandated veterinary inspections—putting other monkeys and the public in danger of exposure to deadly diseases. We’re now urging officials to investigate this serious violation of federal law.
- Victory! After hearing from PETA, soy-sauce giant Kikkoman (which we persuaded to end its own animal tests in 2015) announced that it will prohibit the University of Wisconsin–Madison from spending the company’s research funding on animal experiments.
- And another landmark win: Following discussions with PETA and our friends at Kindness to Animals, Nestlé licensee AGV Products Corp. has become Taiwan’s eighth major food company in just 10 months to ban all animal tests not explicitly required by law.
- Terrific news! PETA entities and Humane Research Australia have persuaded the University of South Australia to ban the forced swim test. The school won’t approve the vile near-drowning experiment in any future research projects.
- Oscar-winning actor Sir Mark Rylance wrote to the vice-chancellor of the University of Bristol on PETA U.K.’s behalf, demanding an end to the school’s use of the forced swim test.
