HUNTINGDON LIFE SCIENCES INFILTRATED & EXPOSED IN UNDERCOVER INVESTIGATION
TAKE ACTION NOW!
Animal Defenders International have just published a report and film exposing every aspect of the vivisection primate trade across three continents including sending a worker undercover inside Huntingdon Life Sciences. They have revealed primates being torn from the wild and placed into tiny prisons in Vietnam, to then endure a thirty hour journey in a restrictive cage arriving at Huntingdon Life Sciences in the dead of night to undergo horrific experiments.
The undercover worker filmed monkeys strapped in to chairs and forced to inhale products. Many were left in one cubic metre cages and then taken out to be held down by workers as tubes were forced down their throats. Primates inside HLS are living in cramped, dirty baron cages. The psychological damage inflicted on these innocent beings lead them to chew their own fingersand toes off the the bone; and one primate's face became so injured she had to be force fed.
During the year long ADI investigation 217 primates were killed in just five studies for customers including GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), AstraZeneca and the MoD.

After the 1997 expose when HLS workers were filmed abusing animals GSK and AstraZeneca both dropped HLS. They soon went back to them when Brian Cass promised to turn the company around, but said if it ever happened again they would not use HLS to contract experiments. We all know this kind of thing is going on every day inside HLS, but now we have up to date footage from inside HLS during 2008.
Please contact GSK & AstraZeneca and ask them to stop contracting experiments at HLS and ask them to look at the undercover footage and report written by the Animal Defenders International. There is a sample email below with details on who to write to.
Do not let these animals die in vain; now is the time to take action. We must stand up and fight against animal cruelty, we urge everyone who can to attend our next national protest in London on the 27th of february where we will protest against HLS's financial backers.

To whom it may concern
I am writing to you regarding a recent investigation carried out by the Animal Defenders International (ADI). They sent an undercover worker into HLS to work in the primate unit during 2007 and 2008.
The undercover investigator witnessed five studies including one sponsored by your company.
The primates in HLS are living in dirty baron cages and are being captured in the wild having to endure 30 hour journeys in cramped conditions. The living conditions are having serious psychological effects on the primates leading them to self harm, they are chewing their own fingers and toes off and one primate's face became so injured she had to be force fed.
All this cruelty has been caught on camera and HLS is guilty of yet more cruelty, now being exposed for the seventh time in ten years. HLS have also been caught out carrying experiments over the severity limit of their licence - yet more law breaking in the worlds most notorious laboratory.
As you are aware this is not the first time HLS have been caught out, and your company has given them too many chances, it is now time to turn your back on criminality and the disgusting violence inside HLS. In light of this recent investigation I am calling on you to halt all contracts with HLS with immediate effect.
