Stop "Hunt with the Trumps for $1million

The wildlife of our nation will not fare well under the presidency of Donald Trump.  In fact on the very first day of Mr. Trump's presidency our wildlife will begin to suffer more than they have ever suffered in the past when Mr. Trump's two sons both ardent hunters sponsor "Hunt with the Trumps for $1million" so the President-elect can start a fundraiser the day after inauguration where donors can win the chance to go shooting with Donald's sons.  How sickening can his sons get to promote such…See More

I was horrified when I found out that the University of Washington, performs sickening experiments on monkeys. Employees at the school perform grisly vivisections -- experiments on live animals -- drilling holes into the skulls of monkeys, implanting coils on their eyes, and tearing infant monkeys away from their mothers to intentionally cause psychological trauma.The primate research taking place at University of Washington is scientifically meaningless. Experiments on baby monkeys are…See More

My Comments on Death of Harambe and What You Can Do

 I have come to the conclusion that the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden is fully responsible for the VERY UNNECESSARY death (to me it fits the term Â"murderÂ") of Harambe, that poor innocent gorilla who was forced into a situation beyond his control and confused by the screams of the crowd and all the activity that pursued. The Cincinnati Zoo and all zoos are clearly to blame for whatever deaths or injuries that result when improper contact is made between humans and the wild animals…See More

Of course I am totally opposed to animal experiments. After reading what you wrote about animal experiments I thought that my article and especially the section written by Dr Anderegg would give you some further useful information. If animal experiments are useless, counterproductive and damaging then we do not need an alternative to them, we simply abolish them. Campaigns and funds who advocate "alternatives" are reinforcing the myth that animal experiments must be useful in some way.
