Secondly, how many animals die due to animal testing? Each year, more than 100 millionanimals—including mice, rats, frogs, dogs, cats,rabbits, hamsters, guinea pigs, monkeys, fish, and birds—arekilled in U.S. laboratories for biology lessons, medicaltraining, curiosity-driven experimentation, and chemical,drug, food, and cosmetics testing.
Then, what happens to animals during animal testing?
U.S. law allows animals to be burned, shocked,poisoned, isolated, starved, drowned, addicted to drugs, andbrain-damaged. No animals are safe fromexperimentation—primates, dogs, rats, mice, rabbits,pigs, fish, and cats are just a few of the animals who areroutinely used in these tests. You can help stopthis.
Why is animal testing inhumane?
The harm that is committed against animals shouldnot be minimized because they are not considered to be "human."
