Animal cruelty in research facilities


Three days ago PETA France published a new video of dogs suffering in research facilities in France. Their video footage reveals that behind closed doors at France’s Alfort National Veterinary School, dogs are deliberately bred to develop crippling muscle diseases. The footage given to PETA by the group Animal Testing reveals that the dogs struggle to walk, swallow, and even breathe.The research  is paid by Téléthon a french association for Myopathies, a group of disorders characterized by a primary structural or functional impairment of skeletal muscle. It is traditional that at this time of year (december) Téléthon organises events to raise money. PETA urges Téléthon to Stop Funding Cruel Experiments on Dogs! Below you’ll find an article in french.
