Tell University of California to Stop Vivisection

  • by: Animal Advocates
  • recipient: University of California, San Francisco, Chancellor Susan Desmond-Hellmann

More than 100 violations of federal animal welfare laws and guidelines were reported by 2012 USDA inspections of animals in testing and research at the University of California San Francisco, (UCSF).

As exposed by idausa.org, a monkey was found in extreme distress and pain following an invasive brain proceedure which left a piece of plastic in her skull for 2 years,- another monkey was intentionally deprived of food and locked in a restraint chair following multiple brain surgeries,-  and mice and rats had their skulls, backs and abdomens cut into without pain relief.

Tell the Univeristy of California vivisection is not the answer to our health needs; rather, it is often dangerous for human health, horrifically cruel, and a waste of taxpayers’ dollars. Stop this unproductive use of animals in testing and research at UC San Francisco.
