Huntingdon Life Sciences - a notorious laboratory that conducts the most cruel and awful experiments on animals in the name of science. They have been exposed repeatedly by undercover video of abusing the animals in their care - not only by carrying out the dreadful experiments but also by mistreating the animals punching them, kicking them - being in a position of power and control over the animals they tend to go really Auschwitz on the poor animals.

More on HLS:
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. They cause so much needless suffering to animals claiming that animal testing is necessary when it is not - there are companies out there that dedicate themselves to providing alternative models to using animals in testing and the results are by far more accurate than the misleading animal tests.
Basically Huntingdon carries on doing these useless animal tests because it is ignorant of the fact that the truth and the future lie in Alternatives to animal testing and they continue to try and justify using animals as test subjects. ANIMALS ARE NOT NEEDED TO TEST ON - WHEN THERE ARE OTHER MODELS TO USE!
Simply put, animal experimentation continues because it is highly profitable. All the following constituencies make money: scientists, physicians, hospitals, regulation agency bureaucrats, pharmaceutical companies, medical conglomerates, politicians, animal farmers and vendors, lawyers, reporters, and news media, to name a few. Other companies, whose products may or may not pose human health problems, use animal testing to secure themselves against litigation too. Think asbestos. Think tobacco. None of these constituencies can afford for the public to lose confidence in the idea that animal testing protects them.
Thank you - from all the animals that are suffering at the moment - for taking the time to read this, for signing this petition and spreading the word to get more signatures.
