Rabbits given cholera and fatal injections in ‘painful’ university experiments

Hundreds of rabbits were allegedly subjected to to painful experiments in British universities last year, a campaign group has said.

Some of the creatures were infected with cholera, others given fatal injections, while some had their eyes sewn shut.

Scientists are becoming increasingly secretive about the tests, and the number prepared to release figures almost halved this year, researchers found.

Oxford University, which in 2017 carried out 236,429 tests on animals, refused for first time in four years to reveal how many rabbits it used last year.

Edinburgh, Cambridge, University College London and 15 others also declined to give details, according to anti-vivisection group Animal Justice Project (AJP)

The campaign group, which uncovered details of some experiments from research papers, called for more transparency on “out-of-date and futile” tests on “Easter bunnies”.

It believes around 26 experiments are conducted every day on rabbits in the UK, many in academic institutions.

AJP alleged that last year:

  • Sixty baby rabbits were infected with cholera at Nottingham University, causing diarrhoea, vomiting and dehydration. They were believed to have suffered extreme thirst, low blood pressure and irregular heartbeat causing death if “humane termination” was not carried out.
  • At Liverpool University 18 rabbits had bacteria injected into their spines every other day for 10 days to induce fungal disease. Some died prematurely.
  • At University College London researchers carried out “traumatic” eye surgery, injecting drugs into rabbits’ eyes and sewing them shut. Six rabbits were operated on for eye implants and left for a month before being killed.
  • Sheffield University led on a study in India in which synthetic membranes were glued to one eye of 14 rabbits and the eye sewn shut. Ten animals were left with ocular lesions and eye congestion. “These rabbits would like have felt severe pain and burning to their eyes while confined to their barren metal cage or worse, restraining stocks,” AJP reported
  • At Leicester University at least 64 rabbits were killed in an experiment funded by the British Heart Foundation. In multiple experiments by Kings College London rabbits’ heart arteries were injured before they were fed high-fat diets so researchers could investigate plaque build-up

 

Durham University used 264 rabbits, Leicester used 68, Sheffield 59 and Nottingham 40, according to AJP, which also claimed that Liverpool University refused to answer a freedom of information (FOI) request but told a member of the public it used 122 rabbits.

Latest government figures show that 9,498 rabbits were used in labs in 2017, and AJP said more than half of all animal experiments take place at universities.

The group, which asks them all each year through FOI laws about animals used in research, said this year numbers of institutions being open almost halved, from 46-57 usually to 29 out of 70.

The number refusing almost quadrupled, from 5 to 19, many promising to put details online.

AJP said a replacement test for rabbits had been accepted by regulators since 2010 but its use was not compulsory by law.

Claire Palmer, group founder, said: “Animal experiments like those we have uncovered will be unpalatable to many. Rabbits are a much-loved animal who some share their home with. Disturbingly, universities just won’t tell us what is happening to them.

“They refuse to make information public when asked, but get round it by saying they will put figures online.”

Campaigners staged a “die-in” at Nottingham University, with members dressed as the White Rabbit from Alice In Wonderland. A similar protest is planned at the University of Liverpool on Good Friday.

Speaking on behalf of the universities, Wendy Jarrett, chief executive of Understanding Animal Research, denied they were being secretive.

She said: “Since the publication of the Concordat on Openness on Animal Research in the UK in 2014, organisations that carry out, fund or support research using animals have been increasingly transparent about their animal research. UK universities in particular are very open about the research they carry out using animals, with most providing facts, figures, case studies and photos on their websites.

“The AJP’s own figures show that of the 62 universities they contacted this year, 29 provided the information requested and 31 said that they would publish the information on their websites. It is hard to see how AJP can say these universities are being secretive. A few UK universities use rabbits in research, but rabbits overall make up 0.3 per cent of the animal research in this country, and only a quarter of that takes place in universities.

“If alternatives to animal research are available and have been validated by regulators, it is illegal to use an animal and the research will not receive a licence from the Home Office. So rabbits are only used for safety testing, for instance to check that a vaccine will not cause fever in babies and children, when there is no non-animal alternative available.”

A Nottingham University spokesman said: “Animal studies are still important where animal-free models cannot mimic the sheer complexity of the body.  “The cholera study was undertaken for the World Health Organization and government of India to develop treatments for antibiotic-resistant infections. Demonstrating it worked successfully in rabbits was a vital step towards a new cure for a disease which affects millions of the poorest people worldwide.

“We proactively publish all details of our animal testing programme on our public webpages and respond to all Freedom of Information requests.”

An Oxford University spokeswoman said they refuse Freedom of Information requests only on data already due for release.

“The university also releases all animal testing data, by species and severity, every single year. This is usually in the autumn,” she added.

A Liverpool spokeswoman said its work had led to new drugs being approved, adding: “The university uses rabbits in research to help develop new antimicrobial agents for babies, children and adults for diseases that currently have few, if any, treatment options. Rabbit models are used to identify safe and effective dosages of new drugs that can then be studied in clinical trials.”

A Sheffield spokesperson said its research contributed to groundbreaking developments in treating major diseases, and it was committed to replacing animals.”However, we are not yet at the point where these techniques can entirely replace the need for animals in research.”

A spokeswoman for UCL said it was very open on the animal research it does and its commitment to use alternative techniques where possible. “Practically all the drugs available today have been discovered or developed due to animal research, and we would not have vaccines, cancer drugs, blood pressure medication, insulin, or inhalers without this work. Research using animals continues to be necessary,” she said.

The Independent has also contacted Leicester and Kings College London for comment.

AIDS research: The senseless suffering of the monkeys

 

“Among people”: A film by Christian Rost and Claus Strigel

 

Affe _n

Existence in six-square-meter boxes with no natural light and no contact with conspecifics: For years, forty chimpanzees from Sierra Leone have been illegally used as experimental animals for the development of AIDS and hepatitis vaccines. When the Austrian pharmaceutical company Immuno discontinues the experiments after 15 years without result, a rehabilitation project is launched.

At the far end of Austria near the czech boarder one of the most special places on earth can be found. At this focal point the moral challenges of our civilisation collide: guilt, responsibility and compensation. In an abandoned safari park, hermetically sealed off from the rest of the world live these fourty chimpanzees formerly used in pharmaceutical experiments. Infected with HIV and hepatitis viruses. Traumatized, deranged and highly aggressive.

They hate humans and have every reason to. Their guards are the same ones they already looked after in the lab. They have become emotionally close to them and become fellow prisoners. Now they accompany the primates in their first steps into a new life.

Today they manage the unique rehabilitation project, aiming to get the chimps out of their lifelong isolation into species appropriate groups.

The shocking fate of the chimpanzees is representative of that of all animals, which are tormented in the laboratories for a questionable benefit.

The “doctors against animal experiments” mean: “In AIDS, the first step does not work. Because there is virtually no species that develops the human form of immunodeficiency. After years of unsuccessful attempts, experiments with chimpanzees that are genetically very close to humans have largely been abandoned because they are immune to the pathogen.

The same applies to rhesus monkeys and other macaques, but one can infect these animals with SIV, the monkey AIDS pathogen.

However, monkey AIDS has virtually nothing to do with this human immunodeficiency disease.

Thus, it is attempted to find a therapy or vaccine for humans by infecting other animals with another virus that causes another disease. Nobody is surprised that AIDS is still not curable in such an approach.

Once infected with HIV or SIV, the monkeys are kept isolated, spending the rest of their lives in single cages, which are usually only slightly larger than themselves. For the active and social animals, this alone is an ordeal.

unter-menschen-sw

SIV infection often causes severe disease in macaques. The animals suffer from cancer or diseases of the stomach, intestine and lymph nodes. Many of them die from it. In other monkeys show no symptoms at all. They often have to live their lives for years under the torturous conditions….”

My comment: The fight against AIDS is a billion dollar market. The development of “new” agents at the expense of the animals does not help the patient. For biotech and pharmaceutical companies, the business is highly profitable. Investors earn money.

“These are “highly profitable products,” says Michael Fischer, head of the consulting firm Medical Strategy in Munich.

The more people are receiving medical treatment, the better for the pharmaceutical companies. According to a study by the US bank JP Morgan, global sales of AIDS drugs now amount to around five billion euros a year!!

Every war has its winners and its victims. The war against the HIV virus not only has humans as victims, but also animals. The winner is the Pharma mafia, as always.

“In the end it’s all about money, we have to see that very clearly.”

We start the day with two good news!!

 

USA-Flagge

 

It is encouraging if we can start our day with good news. Today there are even two and both come from the USA!!

Great news: The pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson has given a life-saving commitment following talks with PETA USA. In the future, the company will neither conduct the cruel forced swim test itself, nor will it finance appropriate animal testing.
In the forced swimming test, mice or other small animals are placed in a water tank and must swim to despair if they do not want to drown. On March 5, 2019, we reported about it (https://worldanimalsvoice.com/2019/03/05/hopelessness-from-the-lab/).

Schwimmtest-Ratte-

Both Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary Janssen have published in recent years documents about the implementation of this completely pointless animal cruelty. The announcement made now signals the end of animal suffering in these nonsensical tests.

Johnson & Johnson made the right decision with the end of the forced swim test, because the experiment is not only scientifically useless, but also incredibly cruel.

In December 2018, AbbVie was the first pharmaceutical company publicly against the attempt. After PETA USA had asked the company to do so, they agreed not to carry out or finance the test in the future. On the company’s website it can be read that the Forced Swim Test is currently not carried out, an implementation is not planned in the future and corresponding attempts are not financed.

Maus_schwarz_in_Haenden-jpg

https://www.peta.de/Johnson-und-Johnson-Forced-Swim-Test

My comment: is nothing else but boundless joy!!

 

And now the second good news, also from USA!

 

USA-Flagge

In a resounding victory for animals, PETA has learned that the notorious Garden Bros. Circus will be allowed to carry out its scheduled performances in Washington, D.C., this weekend with willing human participants only—no animals can be forced to perform. DC Health denied the circus an Exotic Animal Permit. Garden Bros. has an “F” rating from the Better Business Bureau, and its workers have been caught striking an elephant in the face with a bullhook, whipping a llama onstage, forcing lame elephants to give rides and perform tricks, denying veterinary care to wounded and injured animals, and more.

 

The owners of the circus are having a rocky start to the tour season:

  • After learning that Garden Bros. was headed to the Greenville Convention Center in South Carolina, PETA worked with the venue which committed to banning Garden Bros. and all other circuses from performing there with animals in the future.
  • The Antelope Valley Fair & Event Center in Lancaster, California, decided to skip Garden Bros. performances scheduled there.
  • The Board of Selectmen in Walpole, Massachusetts, denied Garden Bros. a permit to put on a show there after learning about the circus from caring local advocates and the Massachusetts SPCA, which used information supplied by PETA.
  • With “Nosey’s Law” newly in effect in New Jersey, Garden Bros. won’t be able to force elephants and camels to perform in the Garden State. Authorities notified Garden Bros. that its advertising in the state depicts prohibited animals and rides and appears to violate the law. The letter goes on to tell the circus to update its materials immediately and inform consumers who have already bought tickets that the show will not have wild and exotic animals.

We’re glad the venues and localities above have joined the long list of ones that have already canceled Garden Bros. shows, barred it from performing with animals, or banned all animal acts. Now, more than 650 retail venues prohibit or restrict circuses with animals, and that number will continue to grow.

 

 

 

https://www.peta.org/blog/washington-dc-garden-bros-circus-perform-without-animals/

My comment: In Europe, there are 22 countries that have introduced wildlife prohibition or even general prohibition of animals in the circus. Germany is NOT included.

roncali cirkuspg

There are 17 countries worldwide, which also have wildlife prohibition in the circus.
Bolivia, for example, has general animal prohibition in circus!
But not Germany.
And Bolivia is a poor country. Bolivia is not Europe. And Bolivia has never said it has one of the best animal welfare laws in the world.
We can not name it other than that corrupt politicians has made Germany a circus number worldwide.

Animal testing for the poison glyphosate

 

Tierversuche-Mauese-Ratten-USA

Animal testing for glyphosate

Scientists and authorities have been discussing the use of glyphosate and other pesticides for years. While some experts believe that glyphosate can cause cancer in humans, others rely on the opposite. So far, no satisfactory agreement has been reached. The new approval of glyphosate by the EU in 2017 has provoked strong calls for a revision of the regulatory process.

-18-glyphosat-tierversuche

The poison kills not only “weeds” but also other plants and is thus a major cause of the massive extinction of species, because the animals are deprived of their livelihood. The International Agency for Research on Cancer’s (IARC) Cancer Research Agency classified it as “probably carcinogenic to humans” in a March 2015 report.

However, the WHO / FAO Panel on Pesticide Residues (JMPR), on the basis of its own commissioned studies, found that the chemical would pose no threat to humans.

Animal testing for glyphosate

For decades countless animal tests have been conducted to determine the “safety” of glyphosate, in which thousands of rats, dogs, mice and rabbits were tortured and killed. Although glyphosate is extensively used in agricultural and consumer products, it seems more divided than ever before on its potential toxicity!!

Tierversuche-Mauese-Ratten-104-0418-c-PETA-USA

Unreliable animal experiments on cancer

Regulators rely mainly on an attempt to develop rodent cancer. The test requires hundreds of rats and / or mice to determine if a chemical causes cancer in humans. It is now well known that the test results vary in part and their validity for human health is therefore doubtful.

“In contrast, epidemiological studies point to a danger of the weed killer and in contrast to the animal experiment have a very high relevance in their validity,” said Dr. med. med. vet. Gaby Neumann, Research Associate of the Medical Association.

To determine whether glyphosate is carcinogenic in humans, international reviewers reviewed 14 separate cancer tests on rodents (8 rats and 6 mice), using more than 3,500 animals. None of these experiments gave the same results when repeated!

Animal experiments as a danger

When studies produce questionable results, there is an amazing trend – more animal testing is required! This not only causes further animal suffering but also leads to regulatory decisions that take years or even decades.

According to the chairman of the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment, more than 100 individual studies were carried out for only seven of the prescribed toxicity tests of glyphosate. At least 31,000 animals were killed for it.

Maus-im-labor-peg

Mice and rats were force-fed with chemicals and killed

For a single such cancer test on mice or rats, 400 animals are needed.

Begin as soon as the rat or mouse babies no longer have to be breastfed. Usually they are then forcibly fed with chemicals administered through a tube in the throat.
The substances often cause side effects, including long-term, painful tumor growth, but also nausea, tremors and convulsions. The animals receive a daily dose of these chemicals for up to two years. After that, they are killed and dissected.

tote Mausjpg

These experiments mean pain, suffering and death for every single animal. If the authorities and scientists really care about the protection of human health, they need to recognize how unreliable these tests are and instead rely on methods that are actually relevant to humans.

The data obtained from these laboratory tests can not reliably predict adverse health effects in humans. There are hardly any doubts: Animal testing poses a danger to humans. And the problem can not be solved by throwing even more money out of the window for completely irrelevant animal experiments!

The different assessments are partly due to different results from experiments on rats, according to which the agent was sometimes classified as carcinogenic and sometimes not.
Once again, in the case of glyphosate, results from animal experiments are worthless because they are extremely unreliable.

Meaningful alternative methods

Fortunately, a paradigm shift towards animal-free testing is already under way. Today, there are several technologies based on human cells, and computer models that can predict many negative health consequences, such asf or example: Skin and eye reactions.

Zellkulturplatte-002-c-Institute-for-In-Vitro-Sciences

The regulatory authorities rely instead on animal testing – tests whose results are not transferable to humans, and even pose a danger to him.

The case of glyphosate shows this clearly.

“Thus, toxicity tests must finally be based on animal-free research methods, such as human cell cultures, in order to achieve usable results,” concludes Dr. med. vet. Gaby Neumann.

01-26230-tierversuche_laborratte_

These new technologies, which are actually relevant to humans, bring us a long way towards eliminating unreliable animal experiments. This will make it possible to make reliable predictions about the safety of chemicals in the future, and protect human health accordingly!

https://www.peta.de/glyphosat-tierversuche

 

My comment: For the manufacturers of this poison (Bayer / Monsanto) it is only marginally around this poison, which annually generates $ 10 billion in revenue worldwide. Much more important is the sale of genetically modified hybrid seeds, especially soy, maize and wheat, which is resistant to glyphosate. This is where the really big money is made and endless dependency is created. The annual turnover is estimated at 180 billion dollars. Glyphosate and its application products like RoundUp are just the means to an end!

More and more countries want or have already banned glyphosate.

A new study also confirms that people who are heavily exposed to glyphosate-containing pesticides have a 41% increased risk of developing a cancer called non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Angela Merkel’s (Chancellor of Germany) speech at the German Farmers’ Day in June 2017 contained a clear commitment to glyphosate: “What about glyphosate? I just want to reiterate the position of the government. The Commission has now made an extension. I know that this extension is not eternal. We will work to ensure that you continue to use this substance where it is needed. I want to say that again here. ”

Glyphosat

Today, the biggest CRIMINALS AND MASS MURDERERS get golden needles on their jackets, a lot of money, and torment animals in the lab to convince some idiots that everything is for our good!

US: the cat -horror Lab of Maryland

 

USA-Flagge

 

A recent report from a US NGO (Non Government Organisation) suggests  that in a US state laboratory, cats are infected with the infectious disease toxoplasmosis for research purposes. For years they were given the meat of dogs and other cats.

In addition, laboratory mice have been injected with the tissue of sick cats.

Certain tests were quite bizarre and included feeding the cats the body parts of other animals – dogs and other cats – infected with toxoplasmosis, injecting mice with fluids harvested from dead animals, and so on. The body parts, those were for the food of the kittens, had been procured by the USDA at animal meat markets in China and Vietnam (!!!) according to the report.

Research on food safety

The shocking information on conditions at the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center, a US Department of Agriculture research center in the state of Maryland, has now been disclosed in a report by the White Coat Waste Project, which combats government-sponsored animal testing.

The report highlights the activities of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), specifically its research into toxoplasmosis, which has been going on since 1982 at the Animal Parasitic Disease Lab in Beltsville, Maryland. Toxoplasmosis is a parasite disease, believed to be affecting nearly half of humankind and many domestic animals.

It poses only health risks to those, whose immune system is weakened, and it usually evokes no noticeable symptoms.

Kittenjpg

The infected cats were then tested, parasitic eggs were harvested from their feces and the cats were killed two weeks lateras they had developed immunity. Although the animals were perfectly alright to adopt and the potential owners had not taken any health risks, thousands of healthy kittens were illegally euthanized.

Not all kittens become infected with the disease as a result. However, they are still killed instead of being rehomed. And so USDA has “disposed of” thousands of healthy kittens. “These healthy kittens –who briefly pass the parasite’s eggs and become immune within weeks– are then killed and incinerated by USDA because they are no longer useful,” the report states.

US Agrikultur Ministerium pgUS Department of Agriculture

“A total of 2,988 cats have been used in these research efforts that began in 1982,” USDA administrator Chavonda Jacobs-Young wrote in a response to an inquiry from Congress in May, according to the Washington Post. 

The cats will then be euthanized and burned – as well as using them for tests in the first place- a practice that has often led to criticism in the past. “It is unnecessary and unjustifiable,” the watchdog stated. The scientific value of such tests has been very limited and even further diminished in the last two decades.

cat horror MarylandJPG

“Animal experiments conducted by the USDA are an example of ‘incredible’ hypocrisy, especially as the US Congress condemned cat and dog meat farms and markets.
The congress has banned them in the US to put pressure on other countries that had such markets, “said Justin Goodman, vice president of the White Coat Waste project.

“The US government has been sending people and money over to these countries and subsidizing these horrible cat and dog meat farms and markets, that Congress is so disgusted with, and virtually everyone in America wants to see ended.  So it’s incredibly ironic and hypocritical,” Goodman told RT. “And I think it is a testament to the incredible lack of accountability at the USDA. When on one hand you have the entire nation working to stop the practice that the USDA is helping to keep alive.

Tierversuche-Katzen-University-of-Wisconsin-012

Truth is that virtually any experiment on animals in the United States is legal as long as the right paperwork is filled out.”

While the USDA admitted that a “total of 2,988 cats have been used in these research efforts,” the animal rights group believes the death toll for felines is actually considerably higher. Last year, it sued the USDA, accusing it of withholding information on the cat-horror Maryland laboratory.

Watchdog group White Coat Waste Project wants the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), which runs the lab, to end the experiments and disclose all information about the harrowing tests.

My comment: Again someone was bribed from the pharmaceutical Mafia to conduct such experiments! And with the money of the US citizens! What was done there is against any normal ethics, absolutely unnecessary and disgusting.

Animal cruelty and corruption, nothing more.

I would give the people a lifelong professional ban.

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!

Affe mit Eektroden im Kopfjpg

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.

monkey-on chair-05

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!

monkeyLabL.JPG

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.
