Tell Bristol-Myers Squibb to Implement Non-Animal Tests

From PETA

An insider from pharmaceutical giant Bristol-Myers Squibb recently approached PETA with disturbing allegations about animals who suffered painful and gruesome deaths through negligence.

The whistleblower reported that a monkey and a rat had been scalded to death when the cages in which they were each housed were carelessly put into the company’s mechanical high-temperature, high-pressure cage washer—with the animals still inside. In a separate incident, the whistleblower reports that several monkeys were tethered to their cage doors to be weighed and then left unattended. When workers returned to the room, they found that one of the monkeys had strangled to death.

In addition to these allegations of blatant neglect, from 2008 to 2010, Bristol-Myers Squibb tormented more than 20,000 animals in its laboratories, including more than 2,600 dogs and 3,400 primates who were imprisoned in cages, intentionally poisoned to death, and subjected to other painful and stressful procedures.

Astonishingly, these numbers do not even include the thousands of mice, rats, and other animals who are not covered under the Animal Welfare Act, and they do not include animals used in experiments contracted out by Bristol-Myers Squibb to other laboratories, such as the notorious Covance.

Bristol-Myers Squibb has long been on PETA’s radar, and we have submitted a shareholder resolution this year to urge the company to be more transparent and to minimize its use of animals by implementing modern, non-animal testing methods—recommended  by the National Academy of Sciences.

Please be a voice for the animals suffering in Bristol-Myers Squibb laboratories. Take a minute of your time now to urge Bristol-Myers Squibb CEO Lamberto Andreotti to implement the recommendations outlined by PETA in its shareholder resolution immediately.

    THERES NEVER BEEN A NEED FOR THIS CRUEL TREATMENT TO INNOCENT ANIMALS. IN THIS DAY AND AGE THERES COMPUTERS AND CELLS TO EXPERIMENT ON WITHOUT TORTURE TO ANY LIVING ANIMAL AT ALL EVER ! WHY THEN DOES IT CARRY ON STILL ? IT HAS TO BE TO DO WITH MONEY THE LONG TERM CONTRACTS WITH THE SCUM WHO OFFER THE ANIMALS FOR THIS TRADE OFFER THEM A CHEAP PRICE. LIFE IS WORTH MUCH MORE THAN ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY AND LOWLIFE EGOTISTICAL MAD SCIENTISTS WILL NEVER GET ANYWHERE WITH THE TERRIBLE TORTURE THEY DO TO LIVING BEAUTIFUL ANIMALS. I BELIEVE THEY KNOW THIS TO BE TRUE BUT THEY CAN’T LOOSE FACE BECAUSE OF THE THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF POOR CREATURES THEY HAVE USED/ABUSED AND KILLED.

    Please stop the animal testing now! There is no need for it and you are painfully hurting these animals with no outcome. When testing on animals, if they find a source and the product works, 93% of the time it will only work on the animal, not us. The best way of testing is testing on humans who are WILLING to do the tests.
