“10-10-2007 Brescia Tonight 2 rabbits, 13 ducks, 2 rats, 10 mice, 9 hens/chickens and about 200 chicks have had their lives changed, freed from the cages of a vivisection lab and safe from the experiments and death they were destined for. For these animals the dream to live free, play in the grass and enjoy sunlight, has come true. The lab where we took these animals from is in a basement of the “Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale della Lombardia e dell’Emilia Romagna,” in Brescia. IZS is a state-funded research centre, a huge complex with many buildings, warehouses, offices, sheds and research labs. The experiments the animals undergo at this centre are carried out for the benefit of farmers. Private animal abuse businesses are sustained and supported by research centres like IZS, where the torture of thousands of animals is paid for with public money. Many of the animals we saved were used for experiments on vaccines; the Gumboro disease for chickens and MEV for rabbits. THESE DISEASES POSE NO THREAT TO HUMAN HEALTH Just a glimpse of what these creature are undergoing: the rabbits inoculated with MEV die of hemorrhages, their organs are then used to produce MEVAX, a vaccine patented by the same IZS of Brescia. During the still ongoing experiments rabbits have died while blood samples were taken directly from the heart. Mice are infected with a flu virus, a low risk stock, but we handled them with care anyway and they will live isolated from other animals. A scare …
