The 21st century can be called an age of innovation but if you love animals, you may call it the age of cruelty against animals; big and small.
According to Mirror, horrifying footage of monkeys screaming in pain inside a german laboratory has surfaced on the internet. The distressing video also shows cats and dogs, who appear to be bleeding after undergoing cruel tests.
The video, shot secretly, sheds light on the cruelty that has been taking place inside Laboratory of Pharmacology and Toxicology (LPT) in Hamburg, Germany.
Further, the 8-minute-long video shows toxicology tests being carried out on cats, dogs and rabbits, leaving them in a highly distressed state.
The animals here are poisoned up to certain degrees to calculate that safe mark.
What adds to the misery is the fact that none of these animals are given anesthetics or pain relief medicines before, during or after the procedures.
An online petition has since then demanded LPT's closure and asked the EU to bring stricter laws in place against the use of animals as specimens for testing in laboratories.
