I am not sure if this is ok to put on Binky Bunny, if not I wouldn't be offended if any of the Community leaders deleted it.

Please this is not intended for a heated debate, if you want to sign the petition that is great but if you don't that is fine also, it is up to the individual.


I just received this email from BOING Australia, if you can help follow the link below.

Thankyou

I sent the darn e-mail and added a few choice words of my own, nothing rude though don't want to sink so low as that tosser!!!!! I studied physiology and was never asked to do such horrid things and I passed the class just fine thanks!

Lisa - As distressing as it is to read this I sent the email and added a few things too. This is just horrifying to say the least. I hope that this does not get removed from this site as these things are very important for us to hear about and take action on. It's the ugly part we have to deal with! Thanks Lisa for bringing this to our attention.

This is the prewritten letter with the email address.

I just added my own words after the letter.

I didn't watch the video either.

Re: PHY 3171 - Clinical and Experimental Cardiovascular Physiology - Leader: Dr Kate Denton

Dear Professor Larkins,

I have viewed the undercover footage obtained by Animal Liberation Victoria of classroom experiments on live, anaesthetized rabbits as part of Monash Physiology class 3171.

I am appalled and distressed that sentient animals will continue to be used in this way, especially considering that students have the option of watching a video of the procedure instead. This terrible waste of life must stop, and I ask that you remove these procedures from your syllabus immediately.

I would appreciate a reply about this issue as I am eager to know the outcome, thank you.

Yours Sincerely,

INSERT YOUR FULL NAME AND ADDRESS HERE.

I sent out the e-mail-- I edited it explaining taht they should certainly know something's wrong when non-Australians were hearing about the incidents. My rage was greatly fueled by watching Monty hop around... ;_____; How could anyone hurt a bunny?

I can't look at this site because I will literally be upset for days but I know a great deal about animal experimentation and it sickens me that animals can be so exploited. It's terrible to me that one of the cutest and greatest pets is the most exploited.

For those of you who don't know: DON"T BUY CANDY FROM MARS (M&M's, Twix, etc..) they have been doing very stupid and pointless tests on animals, including rabbits. For chocolate, I mean come on. I plan to have a very HERSHEY Easter. Hershey has pledged to never engage in any animal tests of any kind.

OMG. . . . . . . I watched the video and I just, I don't get it. The students do have a choice, I don't understand why ANY of them would be chosing that to watching a video. . . . And to watch them pat the bunnies. . . . . I'm about to send that letter, but I think I need to calm down first.
