Ahead of National Science Day (28 February), a PETA India member dressed as a monkey stood strapped to an experimental contraption in Hyderabad to call attention to the plight of animals abused and killed in laboratories in India and around the world. Other volunteers for PETA India brandished signs urging, “Stop Animal Experiments.”
PETA India notes that countless monkeys, dogs, rats, and other animals are mutilated, burned, blinded, cut open, poisoned, and drugged in laboratories every year. Not only are these tests cruel, their results are also inapplicable to humans because of the vast physiological differences among species. Modern, non-animal research methods, such as in vitro and in silico tests, are reliable, human-relevant, and more cost-efficient than those involving animals.
