Big Pharma Labs Conduct Cruel Experiments On Dogs, Monkeys, Rats

(ANIMAL CRUELTY/LAB ANIMALS) After a whistleblower reported horrific animal cruelty taking place at MPI Research, PETA filed complaints calling on the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the National Institutes of Health to investigate the allegations. Hired by big corporations and universities like Merck, ArmaGen Technologies, Gilead Sciences, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, MPI Research conducts cruel experiments on tens of thousands of animals each year. According to the whistleblower, dogs are forced to endure spinal taps without any pain relief and monkeys are so deprived of stimulation that they mutilate themselves out of frustration. What's more, MPI has a long history of animal-welfare infractions including serious violations of the federal Animal Welfare Act, resulting in fines nearing $7,000 in 2013. Continue reading below for more on the whistleblower's account and PETA's complaints, which are available here and here. With your help, together we can put an end to the use of dogs and monkeys in experiments once and for all! -- Global Animal

Deer Deadlier Than Cougars? You’d Be Surprised!

(WILDLIFE) Did you know white-tailed deer cause more than a million car accidents, resulting in more than 200 deaths each year? Eastern cougars, on the other hand, could significantly reduce these numbers. Scientists predict if they were to return to their historic range, these predators could actually save human lives--an estimated 155 over the course of 30 years. And while cougars have killed humans before, scientists estimate the total number of lives lost would be fewer than 30 (far less than the number of lives saved). So what do you think? Should cougars return to their old range, or are there better solutions for too many deer on the road?
