BACKGROUND

Every year, UBC conducts thousands of experiments involving animals, including pigs, mice, cats, monkeys, and others. Many of the experiments are highly invasive and painful. Most of the research is conducted with little public scrutiny. In 2010 alone, UBC used a shocking200,000 animals in research.

Stop UBC Animal Research has discovered UBC researchers have:

*Cut open the backs of cats, inserted screws into their spines, and built restraint chambers along the cats’ spinal columns

*Administered electroconvulsive shock to monkeys to induce seizures

*Poured saline solution into newborn piglets’ lungs to induce respiratory failure

*Injected toxins into the brains of monkeys to cause a form of “parkinsonism”

*Exposed mice to cigarette smoke for six months in emphysema research

*Blinded monkeys in vision studies
