MONASH UNIVERSITY ANIMAL ABUSE
Monash University science students are conducting completely unnecessary experiments on live rabbits as part of undergraduate science classes.
Students are instructed to restrain sedated rabbits on a lab table with their paws and teeth tied to anchor points. The students then cut open the rabbits’ throats with an unsterilised instrument and administer various chemicals to see how this affects the heart rate of the rabbit. When the class is over the rabbits are killed and discarded in a rubbish bin.
BARBARIC AND UNNECESSARY
Professor R H Day (Chair of the Monash Animal Welfare Committee) admits that there are humane non animal alternatives available to these students which do not disadvantage them in any way. The majority of U.S. medical schools, including Harvard, Stanford, and Yale, no longer use live animals in any of their pharmacology, physiology, or surgery courses. Why is Monash lagging so far behind?
When distressed students came to us with information about this class we launched an undercover investigation. Wired up with hidden cameras, students documented the animal abuse behind closed doors. Watch the investigation video and then learn how you can voice your opposition to this senseless bloody animal abuse.
