(ed:..my very first political action was liberating a dog from a courier van – the dog had been sold by the spca in auckland to a vivisection company/laboratory in wellington – and was on its’ way to the railway station – to a guaranteed horrible life/death – i just didn’t agree with this – so i took the dog..
..that dog lived to 14 yrs of age – and was much loved/had a good life..
..as opposed to the certainty of a short brutal life being tortured by the sick fucks who torture animals all day long – to earn their silver coin – the vivisectors.
..and i would repeat that action all fucken day long..
..currently in new zealand over a quarter of a million animals are experimented on and then killed by vivisectors – each/every year..
(think about that..!..over a quarter of a million animals – each/every year..this gives you some idea of the abominations practised each/every day behind faceless walls in industrial estates – where nobody can hear them scream..)
..and this vile industry – from the breeders to the torturers has its’ own momentums/reasons for being – (largely retaining their meal-tickets)..
..so this is a problem/issue that is a long way from being sorted..
..that dog i liberated was a lucky one..and i guess if god turns out to be a dog – i might have earned myself some brownie points with that one..eh..?)
Sanctuaries around the United States are preparing for an influx of retired private lab chimps like Foxie now that the federal Government has stopped backing experiments on humankind’s closest relatives.
Their challenge will be finding the room and resources to house and rehabilitate the animals.
‘There is no space right now for them’ said Diana Goodrich co-director of Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest.
‘It’s a matter of getting enough money to expand the sanctuaries that exist’.
Chimps were key in developing important medicines and they paved astronauts’ way into space.
But their use declined dramatically in recent decades and in a 2011 report the Institute of Medicine said science had advanced to the point that most such research was no longer justified.
About 700 chimpanzees remain in government and private labs.
(ed:..and seriously..!..how do those vivisectors sleep at nights..?..are they totally unfeeling about the torture of animals they engage in on a daily basis..?
..do they ever have even the slightest twinge..?..about what they do..?..)
