The British government is considering replacing current lab animal regulations with a new EU directive that offers less protection. Adopting the EU law could result in reduced inspections in labs, less oversight by ethical committees, inhumane methods of killing, and an increase in suffering by lab animals in the UK.
Every year approximately 10,138 rabbits are used in experiments in the UK. These animals need your help. If 10,000 people raise their voices by September 5th and urge the British government to say no to the EU law, this could prevent a huge step back in animal welfare in the UK. If you live in the UK, you can say no to the consultation by clicking here.
