A new report found a widespread problem of non-compliance in Great Britain when it comes to animal testing and animal protection laws. The stories of avoidable deaths are heartbreaking and shocking.

According to the petition, In 2019, over 100 rats were crushed to death in a trash compactor. In 2020, a primate died after staff failed to notice the animal was trapped behind a restraint device. In 2021, 740 fish suffocated to death after the water drained from a tank because staff didn’t close the valve. Unfortunately, these are just the start of it.

Nearly a quarter of the non-compliance cases were simply because animals were not provided with food and water. These animals were starving to death because researchers simply forgot to feed these living creatures. Much of this abuse goes unnoticed because regulators continuously fail to crack down on labs when they discover non-compliance cases.

Sign this petition to demand the Home Office properly enforce animal protection and animal testing laws!
