Our Military - Guilty of animal cruelty?

Hundreds of Thousands of Animals Killed Annually in Cruel Military Experiments WARNING GRAPHIC!

The Most Painful Laboratory in the United States:

The Air Force Research Laboratory at Brooks AFB

Brooks AFB use of animals in experimentation has long been a cause for concern due to the types of experiments performed within the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) as well as the extremely long term nature of the projects involved....
For the 2004 reporting year experiments at Brooks AFB utilized 2091 animals including dogs, rabbits, primates (rhesus monkeys and other species), pigs, rats, mice, frogs, and snakes. 907 (43.4%) of these animals were used in painful experiments without benefit of anesthesia.

This may be the highest level of experiments with unrelieved pain of any laboratory in the United States. Fifteen of the animals experiencing unrelieved pain were dogs, five were primates, 685 were mice, and 202 were rats.

The type of experimentation conducted at Brooks AFB clearly reveals the reason for the highly invasive nature of these protocols. Information obtained from the DOD database ( discusses the use of primates in projects involving laser injuries, microwaves and radiation.

Pigs are used in munitions research and wound research. Rabbits and guinea pigs are used in radiation research. Rabbits are also used in microwave experiments. When the nature of this research is examined it is not surprising that the laboratory at Brooks is among the nation’s worst labs for performing painful experiments. In fact, a skeptical mind would wonder if the laboratory is actually under-reporting the number of animals used in painful experiments.

Please call your U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative and demand an end to this cruel, barbaric, and irresponsible "industry."

U.S. 'Defense' Lab built in Maryland imprisons animals for making and testing weaponized microbes and genetically engineered viruses and bacteria. Once again animals will be the unseen victims suffering excruciating deaths at the hands of our own out-of-control government, funded by Congress at taxpayer expense while our country's education, healthcare and environmental needs go unmet.

The NBACC's Director's checklist includes, "expanding aerosol-challenge testing capacity for non-humanprimates. "We continue to up the ante of biological warfare and are developing a thriving industry which we will undoubtedly export to our "friends" and then have to defend ourselves when they become our "enemies" because of oil or other non-renewable resources.
