Following a run of demos from local Animal Rights Cambridge activists Biocair has now made a statement agreeing never to deal with HLS ever again!
Full statement here: http://www.shac.net/news/2009/august/14.html
--How are HLS?--
Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) are the largest contract testing laboratory in Europe. They have about 70,000 animals on site, including rabbits, cats, hamsters, dogs, guinea-pigs, birds and monkeys. These animals are destined to suffer and die in cruel, useless experiments.
HLS will test anything for anybody. They carry out experiments which involve poisoning animals with household products, pesticides, drugs, herbicides, food colourings and additives, sweeteners and genetically modified organisms. Every three minutes an animal dies inside Huntingdon totaling 500 innocent lives every single day.
Huntingdon Life Sciences is the most exposed laboratory in the world. In recent years they have been infiltrated and exposed time and time again for disgusting animal cruelty and rule breaking. Each time horrific evidence of animal abuse and staff incompetence has been uncovered, including workers punching beagle puppies in the face.
