Photos Taken Inside the Animal Testing Lab

At SNBL, 78 percent of the monkeys are locked alone inside cages. Being caged alone is extremely distressing to monkeys, who are naturally social beings, and they develop abnormal behaviors like self-mutilation, incessant rocking, and hair-pulling.

Torn from his mother soon after birth, a baby monkey clutches desperately to a blanket.

This monkey rubs a swollen eye. The whistleblower reported that physical abuse by workers is common at SNBL.

For some experiments, monkeys were tethered to their cages with a metal tube that was surgically attached to their backs. Experimental chemicals were continuously infused into the monkeys' veins through the tube.

The monkeys were kept tethered to their cages for many months.

The monkeys would shiver and their teeth would chatter non-stop while they had ice-cold liquids pumped into their veins.

Monkeys used in tests had their blood drawn many times a day, resulting in swelling, redness, and bruising of their limbs. The monkeys generally did not receive any veterinary care for their injuries, which were considered "routine."

The monkeys' veins would rupture because of the repeated blood draws, and workers would poke and dig around in the limb to find other veins, exacerbating the monkeys' suffering.

Locked alone in a cage, this beagle is desperate for attention.

    Animal experimentation is a human disgrace. I don’t quite understand why people think that animals are theirs to torture. This must stop. Everyone should write to their government representatives to protest this. There is no reason to use animals this way. There are alternatives. I wonder if humans would be willing to submit to this kind of treatment. After all, this supposed “research” is designed to benefit humans, so why don’t they submit to it themselves and find out what it’s like? This just makes me sick. For those of you who don’t know – most universities in the U.S. have animal testing labs.

    Is this what the world is coming to? I have some words to say to whatever f*cked up, blackened hearted scientists did this.

    F*CK YOU. I hope you rot in hell for this sadistic, scarring experiments.

    I think, instead of using animals, prisoners that are on the death sentence could volunteer themselves for experimentation. As said in the Peta video, mice are not little men. But a murdering rapist man will have the same results as any normal man.

      I agree with you 200%! Murderers and rapists would deserve this, but what is an animal’s crime?

      There IS something you can do. Write to the government and protest. There are human laws in the U.S. Insist that they be enforced.

    Those criminals should ponder over the following sayings:”THOSE WHO LIVE BY THE SWORD, SHALL DIE BY THE SWORD” and ” EVIL WILL RECOIL ON THE EVILDOERS”. THOSE NASTY FELLOWS, SHOULD THINK THAT THERE IS A UNIVERSAL JUSTICE THAT WILL PUNISH THE EVILDOERS, AND SET EVERYTHING RIGHT.

    These sadistic cowards are doing things just to be doing
    things because there is no basis for what their doing.Their data will be thrown into the trash since it can not be applied
    to humans.The suffering,abuse,torment,trauma and unspeakable anguish suffered by these helpless,defenseless,animals by uncaring experimenters cannot and should not be tolerated any further by our society.The world needs to know what really goes on in these despicable facilities.The sheer stupidity of their experiments at the expense of innocent animals.It’s sad to say but: UNSEEN THEY SUFFER,UNHEARD THEY CRY,IN AGONY THEY LINGER,IN LONELINESS THEY DIE.
