Video shows animals being abused in German laboratory

Secret footage filmed at a pharmaceutical and toxicological laboratory in Germany shows animals being abused while tests are being carried out on them.

It is being reported that the video was shot at the Laboratory of Pharmacology and Toxicology (LPT) in Hamburg, and shows dogs which are dead and other dogs in cages, covered in blood, as well as monkeys screaming in agony,  throwing up, and other monkeys which are dead.

In the footage which was shared by the organisations Soko Tierschutz and Cruelty Free International, one can also see rabbits and cats which were allegedly given around 13 injections daily.

This video is placing more pressure on German authorities to update their laws and improve their enforcement where the treatment of animals is concerned, after a few months ago the European Commission chastised Germany on the issue.
