Tip of the Week: One of the most common form of animal cruelty is the abandonment of dogs. As pet owners fail to understand and control the behavior of their dogs when they go around chewing shoes and furniture, barking, urinating in the wrong places, etc, they 'give up hope' and abandon them.

Well, it is our responsibility to spend some quality time daily to train your dog! It will take some patience, and a lot of love. But remember, just like us human, learning as we get older, animals learn as they grow too! And what is better than to spend some quality time to bond with man's best friend?

Testing on live animals is such a no no. This is the lab where Annie Le was murdered, her body stuffed in a wall of the lab. A DNA match has been made implicating a lab technician who worked with the animals to the homicide.

Such an enviroment is unnatural. Experimenting on live animals attracts a certain morality that can and does reach over into how people treat one another!

Educated people in institutions of higher learning are well aware that there are technical advances in research that do not require the use of live animals and many universities and scientists already use them. Yale isn't one of them!

The link provided appears to be a log-in page for staff, so it is not helpful as a source of information. It is ridiculous to suggest the nature of the work carried out in the lab caused the murderer to murder, or to insinuate that working with animals in a testing scenario makes people immoral. Many people who work with laboratory animals care very much about them and are in the profession to make conditions better for the animals and to ensure their welfare needs are met. Some of the people work there because they need the money to live off. Murderers come from all walks of life.

Whereas there are certain research areas where there are alternatives to animal testing and certain tests that could be cut down or made more humane, some testing on medicines is necessary. Without it there would be no medicine for any animals, humans or otherwise. That's how the vet knows how much anaesthetic to give a dog when she is neutering him -- enough that he will be unconscious and feel no pain, but not so much that the substance kills him.

If people really cared about test animals, they would be working in animal testing to improve the tests and the conditions the animals were used in. They wouldn't be in terrorist cells making the lives of such people a misery. If you want to learn about someone who has really done things for animal welfare, you should look up Temple Grandin.
