Air Canada Criticized for Transporting Research Monkeys

Critter News

The arrival of 48 monkeys on a flight from China this weekend has brought Air Canada under fire for shipping primates destined for research laboratories, but the airline says it is obliged by federal law to accept monkeys as cargo. A Pearson International Airport employee tipped off the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection that a shipment of monkeys destined for Montreal was being held at the Toronto airport after arriving from China on Saturday. Awful.

A Reluctant Vivisector

Critter News

For all of you who think there are no moral quandaries to vivisection and animal research, read this. At least someone who has conducted animal research has a conscience and is willing to write about it.

When You Have to Make a Choice About Your Beliefs

Critter News

I've decided to quit my book club, which I dearly love, because of a member who works in medical research and supports animal experimentation. Then I read more about what's happening at the New Iberia Research Center in Louisiana. She has no issues with vivisection either. And researching the company she works for makes me wonder whether the clinical trials she sells actually include animal experiments. Tags: animal research

Deconstructing Slate's "Pepper" Series

Animal Person

Beloved family pet Dalmatian, Pepper, is stolen, and after several weeks of searching is discovered to have been experimented on at a hospital and died on the table when researchers tried to implant her with an experimental cardiac pacemaker. He writes, "The dog remained a vital tool in biomedical research for more than 300 years and was the vehicle for a remarkable run of medical breakthroughs.". Would you advocate for continuing to do such research just because it yielded results?

Animal Ethics

The very presence of animals, so emblematic of delicate, complex organic tissue, surrounded by machines, connected to machines, penetrated by machines in research laboratories or crowded together in space-age "production facilities" is surely the more real and visceral source of our outrage at vivisection and factory farming than the contemplation of the quantity of pain that these unfortunate beings experience.
