The following story was featured in a news letter I received recently.

The details described of the treatment and handling of this poor creature and the grossly torturous procedures performed on him are sadly typical of what the vast majority of animals in laboratories endure every minute of every day!


Isn't it time we ALL spoke out against such horrific cruelty? Please write your local, regional, and national elected representatives to express your disgust that any living creature should be forced to endure such cruelty.

"What if some huge, physically overpowering people held you captive and did painful things to you each day? What if they made fun of you when you screamed out of fear, cursed you for no reason, and threw you - literally threw you - back into a cage when they were finished roughing you up? Wouldn't you freeze in terror every time the door opened? Heart racing, you might wish to be invisible to your captors, but you never would be. The anxiety alone would be almost unbearable. It sounds like a nightmare, doesn't it? It is, and it's what monkeys (and other animals) endure in this and other laboratories every day."

                                     

"He didn't even have a name. Instead, he was identified by the last two digits of the I.D. number tattooed across his chest. #99 was one of hundreds of monkeys who were abducted from their homes in the wild, only to be used to test a mysterious experimental substance in a laboratory in Vienna, Virginia.

#99 was the smallest and sickliest monkey in the experiment: too pale, too thin, nearly bald, and his skin yellow and flaking off at the slightest touch. After the experiments he was put through, his tail was swollen, red, and oozing pus, and he had trouble breathing because of huge scabs in his nostrils. Every day, technicians would force a tube up #99's nose, down his throat, and into his stomach, where an experimental substance was then pumped. This procedure caused open wounds in #99's throat, making him choke, gag, and vomit.

#99 constantly would try to hide from his tormentors in the back of his barren cage. One of the workers involved with the experiments said that he looked like a chemo patient; another observed that he looked "pretty shitty". Others simply laughed at him. He was denied any treatment or painkillers for his injuries, and he suffered constant beatings, abuse, and ridicule - in addition to the horrifying experiments. The technicians called themselves "catchers" because #99 would scream and resist while trying to hold onto his cage, terrified of being violently dragged to the experiment table. After the experiment, the catchers would use a high-powered hose to rinse his cage - covered in blood, feces, and vomit - with #99 still inside. He ended each day cold, shivering, and alone."

                    "BEING HEARTBROKEN IS NOT ENOUGH!"

                    

"Yes, this all really happened. Though #99 was killed in that lab, there is still hope for others like him. Companies that experiment on animals think they can get away with this kind of cruelty, but you can help change that!"

I see that this is an older post. This is what brought me to Care 2, I am against testing on animals. I have educated myself on the subject, and it can not be justified in any way.
There has been so many sleepless nights trying to figure out what to do to help to help them.
I write a lot of letters and sign petitions.
