Operation: Revenge of the murdered monkeys and beagles of Lovelace

BACKGROUND

On July 19, 2011, SAEN & WAR Launched a Joint Campaign
Operation: Agitate to Liberate 2011 to save the Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute Lab Animals

Last summer, “…a whistleblower contacted SAEN revealing that Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute (LRRI), as a result of financial reverses, had plans to exterminate 300 monkeys and a colony of beagles whose size we do not yet know. The whistleblower has told us that the monkey slaughter began on Monday, July 11th. 30 monkeys are being killed every day. When they have all been wiped out, the beagles are next.”…Michael Budkie, Stop Animal Exploitation Now (SAEN)

On August 1, 2011, SAEN & WAR announced that 300 monkeys and an unknown number of beagles were murdered by Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute. Lovelace denied this emphatically.

Now, SAEN reported that USDA documentation confirms that Lovelace did, in fact, slaughter 300 monkeys and 100 beagles.

Why did they do this? Lovelace did not want to feed and care for them.

Why not allow them to go to sanctuaries? Lovelace is managed by callous murdering scum.

Not only that, we have recently learned that Lovelace is appealing to their local government officials to exempt the animals at Lovelace from rudimentary and basic animal welfare requirements. More on that later this week.

On Tuesday, February 7, 2012, local New Mexico activists will be holding a protest at LRRI. Although we cannot be with them on the picket line, we can act in solidarity with them to avenge the killing of 300 monkeys and 100 beagles. Start making calls and sending e-mail and letters immediately and keep on eye on this event page as we will release new targets and new contact information. This campaign will continue indefinitely.

Welcome to the launch of Operation: Revenge of the murdered monkeys of Lovelace

Contact the Management Team of Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute (LRRI) to ask them why they lied about the mass murder of 300 monkeys and 100 beagles.

SAMPLE LETTER

To Whom It Concerns,

I am ashamed to be part of a species that objectifies animals, seen as commercial products to eat, wear, and exploit for entertainment and testing. However, of all the inherently cruel conditions humans inflict on animals, nothing is more destructive and immoral than vivisection, unparalleled in both its cruel intent and apathetic nature. To subject animals to unnatural medical conditions and practices for the purpose of theorizing potential human treatments is not only scientifically illegitimate but it is also fundamentally inhumane. As a means of fostering social validation, vivisectors consistently promote the idea that animals are responsible for producing lifesaving equipment and treatments and that those who are against vivisection are opposed to medical advancements. That illogic would be laughable if millions of animals were not tortured to support such.

I am horrified that you maliciously slaughtered 300 monkeys and 100 dogs to save costs on food.  How utterly violent.  Allow me but another moment to correct your disclaimers that animals are treated well, absent suffering and pain. The arrogance of such proclamations is astounding. Humans are unable to adequately describe pain in other species other than to accept its existence; to attempt such is based on pure conjecture and open to interpretation. Furthermore, tens of thousands of animals are deliberately denied pain relief while in obvious states of such, the theory being that introducing pain relief would compromise testing results. How can you honestly submit that introducing diseases to animals, subjecting them to pain, suffering, and agony, denying them companionship and comfort, and imprisoning them for life as done from a position of caring? Your claims are nothing but disingenuous rhetoric meant to deceive unknowing people: if you honestly cared about the well-being of animals, you would adamantly oppose vivisection.

Animal experimentation is unnecessary, unjustified, and unprincipled, its only function to financially benefit those who exploit animals; you are not invisible and your actions are indefensible. Animals have rights to live free from pain and suffering regardless of your objections to acknowledge such, and as long as you profit on the torture of animals, complicit in their abuse and death, I will continue campaigning on their behalf.
