“I abhor vivisection’. I know of no achievement through vivisection, no scientific discovery that could not have been obtained without such barbarism and cruelty.”
Charles W. Mayo, MD (1961), son of the co-founder of the Mayo Clinic.
Another post concerning more hellish cruel experiments on helpless monkeys
In the previous entry you may have seen a reblog concerning cruel experiments on monkeys by in NIH labs in the USA:
https://rantingsfromavirtualsoapbox.wordpress.com/2014/09/10/what-this-lab-does-to-babies-will-break-your- heart/ – please take the suggested actions if you have not already done so.
Now please read and take action to stop horrific experiments on Monkeys at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Germany, a leading research institute in the EU.
If you don’t have the time to read all the information or watch the video please at least sign the petition below:
Petitioning Navinchandra Ramgoolam, Prime Minister of Mauritius
Mauritius is one of the world’s largest suppliers of monkeys for the research industry, exporting thousands of animals every year to the USA and the European Union.
And write to the authority in Germany calling for an end to this research and the removal of the laboratory’s licences:
Regierungspräsidium Tübingen (Government of Tübingen),
There are more actions you can take further down.
These excitements which are intended to study basic brain processes are horrific in the extreme. Frankly I am concerned about the brain process of the hideous people who conduct these experiments without remorse, with callous cold indifference and who knows maybe even some measure of perverted enjoyment. Sick individuals – who in their right mind could go to work everyday and torture sentient beings, animals who feel pain and suffer as do you or I? What kind of person here’s the scream of an helpless animal and remains unmoved? One has to ask, what the hell is wrong with them?
The joint investigation by BUAV and Soko-Tierschutz was carried out at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Germany and provides a
…“a disturbing insight into the use of primates by the research industry. For the monkeys, it is a nightmare world from which death will be their only escape“.
It also provides a disturbing insight into the mentality of the experimenters who are no doubt respected within their profession but who are despite all their intellectual achievement nothing other than psychopaths, souless individuals who torture sentient beings with no remorse. Such mentality regardless of window-dressing – I am sure they have some argument to justify their cruelty – is incomprehensible to me and to most decent people.
Here is what happens in this Laboratory/ torture chamber in one of the EU’s leading research institutions.
Subjected to major brain surgery to implant devices in their skulls; deliberately deprived of water for days; controlled by a pole attached to a collar around their necks; held in a restraint device (called a primate ‘chair’) with their heads immobilised by a post implanted in their skulls, the monkeys were imprisoned inside dark, silent chambers and forced to carry out mundane tasks over and over for hours at a time, day after day, month after month. It is a living nightmare for the animals and death is their only escape.
Now watch the video – Warning absolutely horrific, will break you heart if you like most rational sensitive people have one to break.
A joint BUAV and Soko Tierschutz undercover investigation at a leading research institute in the European Union has revealed the shocking and disturbing use of monkeys in research.
To read the investigation in full please visit: http://www.buav.org/undercover-investigations/A-Living-Nightmare
The investigation carried out at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Germany uncovered the brutal way in which the lives of monkeys were controlled and manipulated in cruel experiments.
The monkeys were subjected to immense suffering through the use of severe water deprivation, physical coercion and restraint. They underwent major surgery to have devices implanted in their skulls and were then held rigid for hours in ‘primate chairs’ inside dark chambers to carry out repetitive tests. It is a living nightmare and death will be their only escape.

Please take action to stop this cruelty
Please read all the information but most importantly please take the following actions if you have not already done so:
Write to the authority in Germany calling for an end to this research and the removal of the laboratory’s licences:

You could also write to the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics and tell them what you think of their cruel experiments and ask them to stop experimenting on Monkeys

Please be Polite
I know it’s difficult to be polite in the face of such shocking abuse but nothing much is achieved otherwise. By all means express your disgust and anger in no uncertain terms, but please no abusive language, as such communications are rarely read or responded to.
Help expose the plight of these monkeys by watching and sharing the above film.

“Atrocities are not less atrocities when they occur in laboratories and are called medical research.”
George Bernard Shaw
I am so angry, the continuing brutal and barbaric abuse of animals seems to get ever more horrific as with each passing day new and more shocking mistreatment of animals is revealed. There is no place in any civilised country or society for the use of cruel experiments on helpless animals. I am ashamed to be human. I often wonder if there is life out there in the vast expanse of the universe and if such life is intelligent in the sense of reaching the highest ideal of ethical treatment towards one another and other sentient beings. If such advanced beings do exist and if they observe us I wonder what they must think of the horrors we impose upon the myriads of sentient beings with whom we share this world simply because we can. Maybe they view us as we view the perpetrators of the many atrocities that we have committed and continue to commit against one another with the disgust and revulsion that many of our species so deserve.
Anti Vivisection Quotations
I abhor vivisection with my whole soul. All the scientific discoveries stained with innocent blood I count as of no consequence.
“During my medical education – I found vivisection horrible, barbarous and above all unnecessary.”
Carl Jung, MD
“Vivisection has done little for the art of the doctor at the bedside, but it has done immeasurable harm to the character and mind of the rising generation of doctors.”
Dr. Rudolph Hammer, LLD
“By and large students are taught that it is ethically acceptable to perpetrate, in the name of science, what from the point of view of the animals would certainly qualify as torture. By the time [the students] arrive in the labs they have been programmed to accept the suffering around them.”
Jane Goodall, PhD
