World-renowned zoologist speaks out on the animal suffering at LPT
Desmond Morris calls for a fundamental rethink on use of animals in research
In the 21st Century, it is time for a fundamental rethink about the way we treat animals used in research. Although poor practices and breaches in EU legislation took place at LPT, every year millions of animals across the EU suffer in toxicity tests. I support Cruelty Free International in its call for a comprehensive review of the use of animals in regulatory toxicity testing.’’
