Baie D'Urfé animal research lab
I attended the protest against the Baie D'Urfé animal research lab because it felt necessary to do something after the W5 show exposed the abuse taking place within this lab.
We are expected to believe that everything is okay now that certain individuals have been fired but it is not okay. It is impossible to carry out these experiments without entering the realm of cruelty.
This is not the only such lab in Quebec and generally they operate under the radar because most people would be appalled at what goes on inside if only they knew.
Some will say animal research is a necessary evil. There is no such thing as a necessary evil. There is only evil.
It is time to turn away from animal testing and invest in alternative research methods.
