protection of rats during experiments

Post by wizzyjo » Tue Oct 05, 2010 12:33 pm

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/mice-are-not-animals/

This petition is for mice, rats and birds used in animal testing in the hope that the law may change to give them the same rights as other animals in testing e.g pain relief. Thought some people may want to sign it :)

This is a US petition, so I'm not sure any signatures from the UK will be taken into account. However people might still want to go ahead and sign just in case.

As far as I'm aware, there are no differences between how mice/rats/birds are treated in the UK compared to other animals in terms of regulations required to be followed in animal testing/research.

In the UK all invertebrates (and octopus vulgaris) are protected by the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act (ASPA), which states that procedures should be done under anaesthetic unless the anaesthetic itself would be more traumatic than the procedure, and that pain relief should be given where necessary/possible.
The UK has the strictest animal welfare laws in the world as far as I'm aware.

ETA: Signed anyway :) maybe international pressure will help, who knows?

I will sign this next time I am on when at home. Not sure if anyone is interested, but there are many companies who test on animals in the name of beauty as well as science. I have been boycotting them all as much as I can. A few examples are Proctor & Gamble (who make Fairy liquid amongst other things) Unilever (Comfort amongst others) Loreal (who own Nestle and Body Shop) Mars (who make the chocolate and Dolmio sauces and some pet foods) Most of your brand names come from these companies. Evil companies. Don't like these companies any more.
Out of my mind . . . . . . . back in 5 minutes!!

Goodbye for now my angel Revel, love you lots and lots :hearts: :dumbohalo: :dumborainbow:

I read something yesterday that stated that in 2013, the EU will no longer accept cosmetics for sale that have been tested on animals which also mentioned the main company being procter and gamble. I cant remember at all what I read it on but you may find it on google if you search it :)
