Please send him a Valentine’s card ORcall or email his office to wish him a Happy Valentine’s Day and ask him to put a stop to UBC’s brutal experiments on animals.

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

 

WHAT YOU CAN DO

*MAIL UBC President President Toope a Valentine’s card urging him to “have a heart” by ending animal research at UBC. Send cards to:

Urge UBC to Disclose Info about it’s Cruel Experiments on Animals

PLEASE FORWARD AND POST WIDELY

ALERT: Urge University of British Columbia to disclose information about its cruel experiments on animals

Every year, the University of British Columbia (UBC) conducts thousands of research projects involving animals, including pigs, mice, cats, rabbits, monkeys, and others. Some of that research employs extremely painful and, ultimately, lethal procedures. Nearly all the experiments are done with little public scrutiny.

For instance, one UBC researcher has experimented on cats for 30 years. In his papers, the researcher described how he had cut open the backs of cats to expose their vertebrae, inserted titanium screws into the cats’ spinal columns to inhibit movement, and built restraint chambers around the cats’ exposed vertebra to give researchers access to the cats’ spinal columns and to fix the animals in a sitting position for recording sessions.

UBC researchers have also:

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

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

*Injected toxins into monkeys’ brains to simulate “parkinsonism”

*Administered electroconvulsive shock to monkeys to induce seizures

LACK OF TRANSPARENCY

To date, UBC has denied Stop UBC Animal Research’s freedom of information act requests and has yet to provide the organization with any details about its experiments. Since much of UBC’s animal research is funded by taxpayers, the public has a right to know what UBC is doing to animals with that money.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

*Urge UBC President and Vice-Chancellor Stephen J. Toope to release information about UBC’s research on animals. See below for sample letter. Please be polite in your communication with UBC. Send any replies from UBC to stopubcanimalresearch@gmail.com

To contact UBC President and Vice-Chancellor Stephen J. Toope:

Email: presidents.office@ubc.ca

Phone: 604.822.8300

*Urge BC’s Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner to compel UBC to disclose information. The OIPC is charged with enforcing BC’s freedom of information law and has the authority to order UBC to provide information to the public.

To contact the OIPC:

SAMPLE LETTER TO UBC PRESIDENT TOOPE

DATE

Dear UBC President and Vice-Chancellor Stephen J. Toope:

I understand UBC conducts extensive research on a variety of animals, including pigs, rats, non-human primates, cats, mice, rabbits, and other animals. Much of that research is funded by the public, through taxpayer dollars, student fees, alumni gifts, and private donations.

UBC – a public institution that promotes critical thinking, debate, transparency, and freedom of speech – has been less than forthcoming about its research on animals. The public has the right to know about such research. Many, like me, vigorously oppose vivisection because we find it ethically at odds with our values of compassion.

Information about UBC’s animal research and decisions by its Animal Care Committee should be made widely available so that prospective students, current and potential donors, and the public can make informed choices about whether to support UBC. The US has a far more transparent system. Information, data, and reports about animal research are posted at website databases through the National Institutes of Health and the US Department of Agriculture. With that in mind, I urge UBC to post the following information online:

*Assessment reports of UBC by the Canadian Council on Animal Care from 2000-2010, including records of non-compliance and violations issued by the CCAC to UBC, as well as UBC’s responses to those assessment reports

*Veterinary care and necropsy reports on animals at UBC from 2000-2010

∗Data on the number of animals used annually in research, teaching, and testing at UBC for 2000-2010. Data should include numbers of animals used by species, category of invasiveness, and purpose of use.

∗Copies of animal use protocols by UBC animal researchers and instructors for 2000-2010

∗Photos, videos, and other recordings of experiments conducted on animals by UBC researchers and instructors for 2000-2010

Finally, I urge UBC to pursue alternatives to research on animals as other universities have done and ultimately end all research on animals. I look forward to your response. Thank you.

Sincerely,

YOUR NAME

Stop UBC Mock Funeral in the News!

This weekend, Stop UBC Animal Research staged a mock funeral for the animals used in research at UBC. The action, which had stunning visuals including caskets, photos of animals in laboratories, the Grim Reaper, and campaign members dressed for a memorial service, was an outstanding success. More than two dozen Stop UBC Animal Research members participated. And the demonstration received good media coverage (See links below):

Update on Endangered Sea Turtles at UBC~ How To Help

UPDATE:

UBC plans to trade sea turtles for turtles at UK Aquarium
University says it will experiment, kill new turtles from Britain

Endangered Sea Turtle

As reported last week, a UBC insider tipped off Stop UBC Animal Research about the university’s plans to kill seven endangered green sea turtles. The whistleblower claimed UBC was killing the turtles because the university was closing some animal research facilities on UBC’s south campus and had no place to move the animals. UBC obtained the turtles ten years ago from a turtle farm in the Cayman Islands.

Since the story made international news last week, a UK-based aquarium has offered to exchange older turtles from its facility for the UBC turtles. The older turtles would be transported to UBC where researchers would conduct highly invasive experiments on them then kill the animals. (See: http://www2.canada.com/topics/news/national/story.html?id=4406219. Also watch Stop UBC Animal Research on CTV’s Canada AM thttp://www.ctv.ca/canadaam/. Click story, “UBC under fire for studying endangered turtles.”)

Stop UBC Animal Research immediately condemned the proposed deal (see: http://www.free-press-release.com/news-group-pans-ubc-s-plans-to-exchange-endangered-sea-turtles-with-uk-aquarium-1299680732.html). We do not support such an arrangement because it would trade one life for another and traumatize the turtles from abroad.

HOW YOU CAN HELP SAVE THE SEA TURTLES AT UBC
*Urge UBC’s President to release the turtles immediately to a sanctuary so the animals may live their remaining days in peace. Urge UBC to reject any deals that would exchange one life for another. To contact UBC President and Vice-Chancellor Stephen J. Toope:

Fax: 604.822.5055

*Donate to Stop UBC Animal Research so we can continue our important work to end animal experiments at UBC. Go to:http://stopubcanimalresearch.org/

BACKGROUND:
All seven species of sea turtles are at high risk of extinction. Listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources, sea turtles face a host of threats. Those threats include: pollution, especially from oil spills, beach front development, ingestion of marine debris, such as plastic bags, the illegal turtle shell trade, and turtle egg and meat consumption. In addition, artificial lighting along beaches often discourages female turtles from nesting and disorients hatchlings who may mistakenly wander inland, exposing them to predation.

British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV) joins Vancouver Group Stop UBC Animal Research (STOP)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Free-Press-Release.com) January 9, 2011 –

VANCOUVER, BC – Today, the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV), one of the world’s leading authorities on animal research issues, joined the Vancouver group, Stop UBC Animal Research(STOP), in calling on the University of British Columbia (UBC) to end its brutal experiments on monkeys. The London-based BUAV and STOP discovered that UBC researchers were subjecting monkeys to electric shocks to induce seizures, blinding monkeys by severing their optic nerves and causing painful increases in pressure within the animals’ eyes, and inserting tubes into the abdomens of pregnant monkeys to inject foreign material into their fetuses to cause kidney damage. The fetuses were later killed. The animal advocates said it is likely the monkeys felt “pain and terror” during some of the experiments.

British Columbians need to ask themselves if they are really willing to close their eyes to the torment and despair suffered by these animals, let alone to fund this type of research through their tax dollars and charitable donations,” said Anne Birthistle, an investigator for Stop UBC Animal Research who helped uncover UBC’s experiments on monkeys. “How do we teach our children compassion when we force animals to endure a life of traumatic use in a laboratory? We have to demand that new, cutting-edge scientific techniques be used and relegate to the past these experiments UBC finds too shameful to fully disclose to the public,” Birthistle said.

A BUAV veterinarian, along with STOP, who reviewed the UBC studies found that:

*Six rhesus macaques were deliberately given electric shocks. Electrodes were applied to their heads through which the shocks were given, apparently to cause seizures. For this the monkeys were only given a sedative and a drug to paralyze them. There was no mention of pain relief. The sedative would not cause complete loss of consciousness and inability to feel and, therefore, the concern is whether they were capable of feeling pain and terror. Because they were paralyzed, they would not have been able to show outward signs of suffering. The animals were also subjected to the unpleasant consequences of repeated doses of anesthesia. There is no mention of what happened to the monkeys.

*Six rhesus macaques were deliberately blinded in one eye by cutting the optic nerve and allowed to live after this brutal mutilation. A second group of monkeys had one eye deliberately damaged by laser to cause a painful increase in pressure known as glaucoma. The animals were allowed to survive this surgery and kept alive, without pain medication, for weeks before being killed.

*Three pregnant rhesus macaques were used, probably off-campus at a facility in the US. A tube was inserted into the abdomen of the monkeys and then into the fetus where harmful particles were injected into the kidneys to cause damage. A few weeks before the fetuses would have been born, the mothers were subjected to abdominal surgery, the fetuses then removed and killed after which tissues were collected.

Non-human primates are highly intelligent and sensitive animals. It is unacceptable that they should be subjected to such shockingly cruel and invasive experiments,” said Dr. Nedim Buyukmihci, Emeritus Professor of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California-Davis and Veterinary Consultant to the BUAV. “Moreover, despite the suffering and tragic loss of life, the findings in the monkeys are not relevant to humans. Elegant and sophisticated methods exist currently to study, in an ethical manner, human patients in an effort to gain knowledge that will be of benefit to them,” Buyukmihci said.

Though some of the experiments were performed by UBC researchers off the university’s campus, STOP and BUAV said the university was sanctioning cruel, invasive, and ultimately, lethal procedures. The organizations also said the experiments are not only unethical, but the researchers are vainly attempting to artificially induce in the monkeys simple symptoms of what are complicated diseases and conditions in humans. The groups said UBC should instead be focusing on non-animal methods that are not only humane, but are also far more applicable and relevant to humans.

###

BUAV has been campaigning for over 100 years to achieve a world where nobody wants or believes we need to experiment on animals. The BUAV is widely respected as an authority on animal testing issues and is frequently called upon by governments, media, corporations and official bodies for its advice or expert opinion. http://www.buav.org/
