Recently, footage of monkeys in a German lab went viral on social media. But the video was a very sad one. It was about monkeys being tortured and the barbaric acts performed on them. There were also cats and dogs held captive and tortured in these labs.

The footage was released by two activists recently. It was obtained from the Laboratory of Pharmacology and Toxicology in Mienenbuettel, near Hamburg in Germany. The footage was captured by an undercover activist for Soko Tierschut and Cruelty-Free international organizations.

The video footage showed monkeys in small metal cages with metal collars around their necks. The monkeys were tortured by giving something similar to shocks as in the video. The wailing and screaming of these poor creatures were recorded in the footage. The dogs and cats were kept in containers and highly degrading conditions. The footage showed a dog laying in an unhygienic condition and blood all over the cell where the dog lay.

The animal rights organization ‘Soko Tierschutz eV’ founder Friedrich Muelln said that the LPT has been the most secretive, notorious private animal testing laboratory in Germany for decades. No animal or information gets out of the laboratory. Due to the nature of the job, people are hired often. the activist went in as a staff and recorded videos.

This lab testing is against the laws that secure the lives of animals. The lab carries out toxicity tests for European and global authorities. These tests are done for pharmaceutical, industrial and agrochemical companies.

The cries of the animals there are truly heartbreaking. The monkeys are said to have been brought from China in large numbers. They are made to eat many substances, injected various substances, etc. Most of these tests cause them to develop various illnesses and in most cases deaths. No pain killers or anesthetics are provided to these poor creatures.

At times, people tend to forget that animals also have life in them. Many animals are also tortured by people. Animals also have lives and feelings. The disturbing video footage has resulted in people coming out protesting against this cruel act.

Animals may not be able to speak, but this doesn’t mean they have no voice nor any rights to live. All living things have the right to live on this planet. But inhumane and cruel acts towards animals question the ethics and humanity of the world today.
