Background | Source BUAV’s Licensed to Kill

An undercover investigation carried out by the BUAV has exposed appalling suffering and wrong-doing inside one of the UK’s leading universities, Imperial College London, ranked as one of the best in the world. Despite Government and industry claims that the UK has strong regulations in place, the BUAV has uncovered a catalogue of suffering and wrongdoing.

Behind the closed doors of this ‘world-leading’ university, the BUAV investigator discovered a nightmare world for animals used in experiments: animals who suffered even more than was allowed by the experiment because of staff incompetence and neglect; a failure to provide adequate anaesthesia and pain relief; breaches and lack of knowledge of UK Home Office project licences and the shocking way in which animals were killed.

The harrowing experiments carried out at Imperial College during the investigation involved the deliberate infliction of major organ damage, surgical mutilation and invasive head surgery to implant cannulas (tubes) so that substances could be directly injected into the brain. Some animals were forced to run on treadmills to exhaustion to avoid electric shocks, others were restrained while a long tube was forced down their throats and substances injected directly into their stomachs.

This investigation has shed new light on the daily reality for animals in laboratories and the ordeal they are forced to endure. Their suffering was often severe and could include a high degree of pain, distress, weeping or bleeding head or abdomen wounds, diarrhoea, lethargy or hypothermia. Many animals died during or after the surgery; and others had to be killed because the level of their suffering was so great.

The BUAV is calling on the Home Secretary to revoke Imperial College’s Establishment Licence, stopping them from carrying out further animal research, and launch a full and independent inquiry in the concerns raised by the BUAV investigation.


imperial college
what lessons
have you to share.
the joys of cruelty,
heartlessness
and no ability
to care?
the world is watching
all eyes on you.
we speak for ALL
animals,
and this we will
always do!

    Experimenting on animals is unnecessary and barbaric. There are more humane alternatives. Please spread the word and help stop this cruel practice.
