5 Ways PETA Is Helping Animals in Laboratories This Week
- After PETA investigated a hideous Colombian facility in which owl monkeys are imprisoned in filth for the sake of a questionable malaria vaccine—on American taxpayers’ dime—a slew of Colombian agencies are opening their own investigations into the two shady organizations responsible. We’re holding the National Institutes of Health’s feet to the fire to urge it to take action, too.
- PETA “mice” scampered to the U.S. headquarters of monosodium glutamate (MSG) maker and frozen-food giant Ajinomoto, slamming the Japanese conglomerate for subjecting mice, dogs, pigs, and other animals to grisly experiments for the sake of dubious marketing claims.
- Journalists are now exposing en masse the hideous primate pipeline that PETA’s been decrying for years—and we’ve got the scoop on the nasty pathogens entering the U.S. via monkey shipments. We’re urging the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to end its cover-ups and inaction and to ban the importation of monkeys bound for laboratories.
- Our supporters paid a visit to the CEO of Project Lead The Way, demanding that the curriculum company swear off gruesome animal dissection.
- PETA Netherlands is exploring other outreach avenues after a major transit company rejected the group’s nongraphic anti-vivisection advertisement, which would have reminded the Dutch public that animal tests fail everyone.
