Stop Removing Dogs’ Hearts for Cruel Experiments

Greyhound-ReneeTellez

Target: Malcolm Turnbull, Prime Minister of Australia

Goal: Ban the use of greyhounds in medical experimentation.

Dogs are reportedly having their hearts removed in barbaric medical experiments performed by the Monash University in Victoria, Australia, on unwanted racing industry greyhounds. Meanwhile, experimenters at the University of Melbourne allegedly saw screws inserted into dogs’ skulls and electrodes inserted into their brains, causing extreme discomfort in all of the dogs and a swollen blood clot in one.

In a recent experiment, 12 dogs were suffocated and had their hearts removed and inserted into other greyhounds, according to rights group Humane Research Australia. While researchers claim that the experiments aimed to “test how well hearts can be preserved before organ transplants when the donor has already died,” some have questioned whether the researchers have learned anything that can be applied to human surgery.

Experimentation on unwanted racing greyhounds is rampant in Australia. In Victoria, nearly 2,000 dogs were used in experiments last year alone. In many of these experiments, the dogs were put down afterward. Some of these experiments were purely cosmetic, including various dental surgeries performed on beagles and greyhounds.

This cruel and unnecessary experimentation must stop immediately. Especially considering the availability of highly specialized simulation software, there is no need to torture innocent animals. Sign the petition below to demand that Victoria save hundreds of dogs from torture and cruel death by banning the performance of medical experiments on animals.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mrs. Dessau,

Reports have surfaced of researchers performing torturous and unnecessary experiments on racing greyhounds. These include reports of dogs being suffocated and having their hearts taken out, and others subjected to purely cosmetic dental surgeries. Of the nearly 2,000 dogs subjected to these experiments each year, many are put to death afterward. Rights advocates say that many of these experiments have very little benefit to human medical care.

Adding insult to injury, this cruel experimentation takes advantage of dogs that have already spent time enslaved by the racing industry. It is imperative that we stop abusing dogs to this shocking degree by banning these types of unnecessary and barbaric testing. We, the undersigned, demand that Victoria take a stand against the rampant abuse of medical testing animals.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Makes me ashamed if the human race. Incredibly evil. How do these cowards sleep at night. This must be stopped. BAD KARMA TO THEM ALL

  4. Surely…technology has outpaced the need for experiments such as this. I understand the need for research…regulatory bodies always need for the most part, animal studies which one would think, could be the root of these awful experiments. Perhaps regulatory bodies can limit these requirements to a large degree because they are based on archaic guidelines.
    But many of these experiments are torturous and researchers are giving up their humanity to get their device or drug to the market.

  5. ALL HUMAN SCUM INVOLVED IN ANY CRUELTY, TORTURE & MURDER OF ANIMALS FOR ANY REASON NEED TO BE CULLED, RID THIS WORLD OF EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THIS FUCKING SHIT!!!!
    GIVE ALL ANIMALS A CHANCE & KILL ALL HUMAN WASTE!!!

  6. TRY EXPERIMENTING AND FINDING A F&%#KG CURE FOR SOMETHING THAT MATTER! … LIKE GLOBAL WARMING OR CANCER … LOSERS … NOTHING BETTER TO DO … WORTHLESS WASTE OF EDUCATIONAL FUNDS!
