The article really says not much. I mean, they were taken from science laboratory, where it means they must be kept in strictly controlled
environments. I think animals are great and I care for them, but if we did not use them in research, where to go for our medical advances? Videos like
this are bleeding hearts, and I hate that they enspire people to protest against all animal science use, including medical research. (I've met a few
people like that). It implies of rampant cruelty and that's not the case.
That being said, it was nice seeing those dogs get out of there.
Why do we find it acceptable to use animals in this way, while killing people on death row?
If you want to know if a chemical harms a human or a medical product cures a disease, there are humans about to be killed by a state who would serve
that purpose much more effectively.
Wait, would that be cruel?
How is murdering people by lethal injection perfectly fine but testing things on them for the advancement of science not okay?
The fact is, it all comes down to profit. People make money from supplying these animals, and those in positions of power have a lot invested in those
Then you have those companies who want to create another pathetic chemical product to save you 0.00000006% of your precious time while cleaning your

find the reasons for the continuation of these barbaric practices.
