Paris: Horror documentation from the lab

 

flagge francepng

 

The monkeys were used for experiments on the brain, for Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. The video shows macaque monkeys in sterile cages, the irreverent handling of the staff with them and preparations for brain experiments.
The French organization “Animal Testing” took pictures with a hidden camera in the basement of a hospital in Paris. The suffering of the animals in animal experiments is immense.

The laboratories are massively scrapping and doing their utmost to ensure that the horror does not reach the public. Authentic images are extremely hard to come by and only possible through such undercover actions as shown here. Animal experiments are cruel and unnecessary!

The monkeys live for years in cages of about one cubic meter.

They only come out for the experiments
They do not see daylight
They are made artificially ill and live with implants in their skullcap.
These pictures in the Video were filmed in the basement of a Paris hospital.

To develop Parkinson’s disease, monkeys are poisoned with the Nerve poisont MPTP.
Unable to feed themselves, they must be stuffed.
A researcher calls this “just about to die”.

They are kept in individual cages and poisoned.

A monkey is blind for unknown reasons.
He sits dejectedly in his cage, and is no longer used for research.
He spends his life in this cage without getting out.
The researcher believes that “this will end badly”

(Translation of the Video- dialogues between the laboratory technicians in the laboratory):

“The problem with the MPTP is that they can not eat anymore.
Therefore, you are forced to cram them.
If you look at them, they are about to die.
They are completely stretched down.

-Yes! this one has big problems
-Is that the one who sees nothing anymore?
-Yes exactly! This morning an ophthalmologist came..
-To take care of his eyesight?

-Well, yes .. not to treat him, but to determine what he has.
-But then he does not work anymore?
-No no.
-He does not do anything anymore?
-Yes, I think that will end badly.
-Yes?
-Yes, that’s for sure!”

Some monkeys refuse to participate in the experiments.
A researcher calls a monkey the last dirt

(laborant): “The females are really poison gnomes. These are already 11 years. And this is really the last thing.
He could easily do the job (!!!)
Only that he does not feel like it. It looks like he’s doing 4-5 tries, and the moment you say, “Let’s do it, you’re kidding us, we’ll stop,” and Hopp! He makes 3-4 attempts again, he stops again, starts again, stops again”…

Fixing chair

monkey-chair-24

The monkeys get used to them by denying them water and food.
This is the phase of mental breakup of the animal.
This may take a week or more, until the monkey accepts to put its head out of the chair and be fixated on the neck.

(laborant): ” Here .. I had a lot of problems with him, he was very unruly.
When you open that part of the chair, the animal voluntarily sticks its head out. The first time they do it, and then you close.
They have then focussed the head outside, and are not free in their movement.

The first time they are so fooled, after a few weeks you can not do it anymore, because they know what happens to them.
And it’s right when you break, it is just right to break the monkey!

Yet (a monkey) took a week to do that. He did not eat for a week.

( Laboratory assistant ):  -Its hard! And there is only this possibility ? …
-Yes! there are only these”!

This is how the daily life of monkeys in the Parisian laboratory is depicted.
The monkeys suffer in this lab for an average of 10 years!

Trepanation

Trepanation or craniotomy is a surgical procedure in which a circular hole is drilled in the skull to approach the brain. At all the monkeys you will see, a trepanation has been made.

rhesusaffe-tuebingen“At her, the implant was used shortly before the holidays.
This animal is still very young, so he just arrived. He has already been implanted.
There is also a little boy who has arrived recently.
This is one of mine, but unfortunately he has lost his impantation.
This one was on yesterday, so it is isolated.
Unfortunately, a craniotomy was performed on him, you can see that he has his fixation implant, it’s the one in front.”

Experiments on eyesight

A monkey is moored in a fixation chair: hands, feet and neck are fixed.
He has to respond to signals on a screen in a box, and receives water as a reward.
The researchers observe his behavior on a screen.

But on that day, the 11-year-old monkey refuses to submit to the experiment.
He closes his eyes, the researchers laugh.
They say a “war of nerves” with the animal is waiting for them.

(laughter in labor)

-Do you notice that the monkey mocks you?
-Exactly! Because he does nothing?
-He gets that on the screen. That makes 27 attempts in 2400..that makes 20 minutes..ah … sorry .. it’s 40 minutes So 27 attempts in 40 minutes, he should normally have done in 340 minutes ..300 / 400 attempts.
And here you see that he just closes his eyes. He shows: “I’m annoying you”!
-Yes! now he starts to move to his chair and ..
-Yes! he gets nervous.
That’s the phase of the confrontation. Nothing happens anymore. A nervous was.
Exactly, it was a nerve, that’s it.
And then you have an 11 years old monkey. In my opinion, you are not bringing anything new to an old monkey”!!

This Parisian institute still carries out its experiments.

Witness call – PLEASE SHARE!
Students, researchers, zookeepers, veterinarians, laboratory workers: you are witness to abuse, suffering, or difficult experiments. Report to us!

#ÄrztegegenTierversuche #gegenTierversuche #Tierquälerei #Tierrecht #Tierschutz

My comment: the witness call the organization “doctors against animal testing” is very innovative and an excellent idea. Hopefully, this idea will be followed by other organizations around the world.
We need civil courage. We all have to have that.
Especially in this area only courageous laboratory contributors can make this torture public when they report it.
Do not hesitate, have courage, contact the organization, report about the crimes of the psychopats!!

My best regards, Venus

Dear Mark, 

We are deeply honoured that Animal Aid Unlimited was featured in Psychology Today, when world-renowned scientist Dr Marc Bekoff used our recent rescue video Anguished mother dog wails for wounded baby. Sweetest Reunion! to highlight the profundity of animals’ emotions. Marc Bekoff is famous for his contributions to the science of animal behavior, animal psychology and to deepening our awareness of the complexity of animals’ emotions and has collaborated extensively with Jane Goodall. Bekoff said our video “could form the foundation for an entire course on the emotional lives of dogs and other animals. They say a picture is worth 1,000 words, and my impression after watching this video more than 15 times is that it’s worth countless words, and also could form the basis for an entire book.”

Friends of Animal Aid know how deeply animals feel, how clearly they can think, how intensely they can worry and love. It’s so wonderful to know that Marc Bekoff’s work helps the general public realize that much more keenly the truth about animals’ emotions. You can read the whole story here.

 

Cuddles: Rescuing a cutie pie in pain

The saddest little sweetheart sat frozen in the road, her pain so intense she couldn’t even drag herself to her mother. We brought her to our hospital expecting a fracture, but were delighted to discover that although her wound was really painful, her hip was sprained, not broken. A few days of rest, tasty food and lots of affection were just what the doctor ordered, and this love bug couldn’t wait to be back on her feet so that she could start playing again. Meet Cuddles now. Please donate today for happy new beginnings.

 

Surgery saved Maxine when her
lung was perforated and exposed

Air billowed out of the wound with every breath she took, and she cowered in a thicket, hiding and confused by pain. With a de-gloving wound over her ribs and a punctured lung, we didn’t know if this old girl could survive such a trauma. We rushed her into emergency surgery, inserting a tube to re-establish negative pressure, thoroughly flushed the wound and began the several layers of sutures that we hoped would save her. We would wait for several days before we knew if she would make it. But her extraordinary will to live was even bigger than her wound. Watch beautiful Maxine today.

And to help the sweetest older dogs who are out there now, please donate today.

 

Rescue of adorable puppy with crushed leg  


Cherry’s leg amputation isn’t what this story is really about. It’s about how astoundingly sweet and almost you can say “gracious” this little one was through a shattering experience. We got the call that a puppy had been hit by a car and her leg was injured. But we’d never seen anything like this–her leg completely crushed and her face–so bewildered, so utterly vulnerable, engulfed by pain and yet trying it seemed to be just the best little patient she could possibly be. She had lost so much blood that we needed to give her 24 hours of IV fluid to build her strength enough to–we hoped–survive surgery and save her life. Cherry’s loving nature inspired everyone around her–to love.

Please donate. Because you can save a beautiful little life today.

 

Shocking rescue of dog impaled by steel rod (with happiest ending!)

You have to see this to believe the horror for a dog who got impaled by a steel rod at the base of an electrical pole, upside down, dangling and pinned by the rod which pushed right through her abdomen, almost out her back. She must have jumped from a ledge in the dark and landed on the rod, where she trembled in unthinkable pain until our rescue team, horrified at this ghastly sight, literally slid her backwards and up off the foot long rod to free her, in fear that she would die any moment. 

You will believe in miracles when you see this astounding rescue and within a month of medical care, Queen’s complete recovery.  Help us get there for those who have no time to lose. Please donate.  

 

At first we couldn’t see how massive his wound was

From a distance, this sweetheart’s wound looked like caked mud covering his backside. But when we examined him in the hospital we found to our horror that maggots had bored tunnels around his tail in a massive wound the size of a frying pan–and the pain this boy had endured was beyond imagining. Even cleaning the wound took hours but from the moment we started flushing with saline, the healing had begun. Meet Chipper now!

Sometimes love begins with “I can help.” Please donate.  

 

Some amazing rescues and recoveries;

Please donate if you can;

Regards Mark.

USA: America’s Biggest Food Companies Are Moving to Meatless.

America’s Biggest Food Companies Are Moving to Meatless

Many of us have made the decision to go vegan. Whether this is for health reasons, compassion for animals, a desire to reduce planetary footprint, or all of the above, choosing to be meat-free is good for the world. What’s even better than an individual going vegan? An entire company making that commitment. And recently a few big companies have done just that, moving toward a more plant-based planet.

America’s Biggest Food Companies Are Moving to Meatless

MorningStar Farms, a subsidiary of Kellogg, will go completely vegan by 2021. Though the brand has been around for years, their decision to go 100% animal-product free comes with a growing market for vegan food. Shoppers care about the welfare of animals and are savvy enough to notice if a product is vegan or just vegetarian. MorningStar Farms wants to stand out among other veggie meat options on the grocery store shelves.

Beyond Meat will release a completely vegan ground beef this year. Made from pea, mung bean, and rice proteins, the “beef” will be located next to animal meat in the grocery store. Created to embrace the versatility of ground beef, the plant-based product can be molded and cooked in a variety of ways: to make burgers, meatballs, tacos, and more.

Another perspective on going meat-free, WeWork, the coworking and office space company made an astounding call to become a meat-free organization. They will no longer serve meat at meetings or functions, all meat was removed from on-site food kiosks, and they even went so far as to stop reimbursing employees for meat consumed on business trips. The company wanted to reduce its impact on the planet and set a new standard for sustainability.

If you live in Los Angeles or another big city, vegan restaurant options are fairly easy to find. But in most of the country, classics like pizza can be hard to find without animal products. But Pieology just became the first national pizza chain to offer plant-based proteins. Though the chain is not vegan or even vegetarian, having vegan options creates a more inclusive environment and normalizes the choice to decline animal products. Other companies could also go further toward a plant-based planet. Boca recently released a 100% vegan ‘Turk’y’ Burger, but has yet to eliminate cows’ milk from all of its products.

Why go meat-free?

Studies have shown our meat-eating habits are contributing to pollution, poverty, and climate change. Moving toward a plant-based planet could help feed the hungry, end the suffering of millions of animals, and help to clean up our water and air. Eliminating meat is a start, but going from vegetarian to vegan can make an even bigger impact. MorningStar Farms says by going vegan, 300 million egg whites will not be used in their products. This puts an end to the suffering of thousands of laying hens as well as eliminating the use of a lot of water and land.

Going meat-free may be good for business as well. Data has shown that demand for plant-based meat went up 24% last year. And the longtime vegan staple, Tofurkey, has received a loan of $7 million to expand production. More and more grocery stores are putting meat-free options on their shelves and marketing them next to meat. When consumers push for plant-based options and businesses deliver, people, animals, and the planet all win.
