Why must these animals suffer?
The latest Government statistics show that almost 3.8 million animals were used in experiments in the UK during 2011, equivalent to more than 10,000 experiments every day. This is the highest number of experiments for 25 years.
We at the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV) find it unacceptable that millions of animals continue to suffer and die in UK laboratories.
