ACT: Target U.S. Bank – HLS Lender Lets Lab Keep Killing

Huntingdon Life Sciences faced financial ruin. But US Bank’s $120 million loan kept them open to poison dogs, cats, monkeys and more animals in tests for pesticides, sweeteners, diet pills… So today animals still collapsed, frothing at the mouth. Dogs who didn’t get enough anesthesia “whimpered and moved” while cut apart.

US Bank is currently Huntingdon’s top debt-relief source. Though made aware of 7 investigations that reveal habitual animal abuse and fraudulent science, the bank approved this mega loan. Apparently US Bancorp doesn’t see animal cruelty as reason to blacklist a company, as it does with illegal gun sellers, gambling websites, etc. Like hundreds of other firms that dumped HLS, US Bank has access to footage and documents about techs who punch beagle puppies, dissect live animals, falsify data, and botch experiments so badly that animals seize and die on the spot.

Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty UK launched a global campaign in 1999, with unified U.S. action a few years later. Anti-HLS efforts target the lab’s infrastructure: Financiers, customers and suppliers are strongly urged to dump HLS in ongoing letter/phone/email campaigns and live protests. Any company with ties to HLS is exposed to evidence of animal abuse. While HLS has teetered on the edge of shutdown, straddled with a $100 million debt, some financier always seems to bail them out. Ask US Bank to end its association with HLS and terminate the current loan agreement.

Please note that some of the addresses will be returned as invalid.

        I know, they bounced for me, too. I am certain they disabled them so they won’t receive emails from protestors. Kinship Circle wants to know which ones bounced to info@kinshipcircle.org . I have sent them an email. Thank you, hon.

      You are amazing, thank you so much for your efforts, Florence! (Many of mine bounced, too, I think they disengaged them so they don’t receive them.)

        Yes, Stacey i think youre right i think they did disengage them. When i went back to the site it said that many times they block them so just send them a list of the email addresses that where blocked im not sure what they can or will do about being blocked but i sent them the email addresses anyway, and no need to thank me Stacey its my sincere pleasure to help any and all animals and people, thank you for making it all so easy!

        Thank you so much, Florence. I sent them, too, and like you wrote, I don’t know what they can do with the info, but if they respond, maybe they’ll let us know further. I love Kinship Circle, they do so much and actually have volunteers who go to places where floods or such occur to help animals. They are a great group. Thank you for all you do, I am so honored to have you a part of OC. 🙂

    For a bank to support and loan still even its on its last leg, must be something for the bank which we all don’t know as thats banks for you, or the banks certain will not give an extra cent more. Don’t you think the banks and goverment can use child rapists, serial murderers, terrorists, who are on death row for years, to use them instead of innocent animals as what have they done wrong, well to them its much easier I suppose, at least the USA tax payers will save alot of money, and the country would be in better shape, instead of keeping, feeding,space taking, as you will get a better result !!!!

      I suspect they don’t care or are just unaware. No place is a sanctuary for animals, though. It is truly sickening. Thank you for your comments.
