If you care about lab animals, I recommend these pages by Understanding Animal Research (UAR).
I’ve often met people who continue to believe that scientists do cruel experiments, for no good reason. That it’s all about pouring shampoo into bunnies’ eyes and stuff like that. Reality check: in the European Union it isn’t like that. You might choose to follow my ‘lab animal’ tag for more about this. You might also choose to follow these links from UAR.
If you’ve been reading me for a while you’ll recall my series about field sports (aka blood sports – see my ‘game’ tag and my ‘shooting’ tag). I’ve gone quiet on that topic because shooting seasons are underway here and there hasn’t been a new one to write about.
So now’s a good time to write about lab animals. I’m grateful to my fellow blogger Jeannee at A Global Garnish Geek for reminding me to write about this. When I read UAR’s words, they’re preaching to the converted. It’s many years since I learned to value animal work.
