Breaking through a vent in a side door, animals on the seventh floor of
the LSU Biology Department building-- 21 mice -- were removed, examined
and treated by a sympathetic veterinarian, and placed in loving homes.
No animals were released into the wild. All 21 were placed in
comfortable, loving homes.
LSU's Animal Cruelty Facility lab was also vandalized in addition to
giving 21 mice new lives free from torture, solitude and suffering.
Aquariums were smashed, windows broken and paint stripper poured on
walls. Spraypaint was used for slogans and further vandalism of the
and the locks were glued on doors to any rooms that housed no animals.
Our deepest sadness is reserved for the animals on the 7th Floor kept
from our arms, those we were unable to save, including hundreds of
mice, dozens of rats, birds, rabbits, and turtles. The cold solitude of the
cage and the deafening silence of sterile, windowless laboratory rooms
on the top floor of a building, with no chance to interact in the
outside world or with one another is torture enough. Add to that the
despicable cruelty of those human beings who've shown no compassion for
screams from animals in their never-ending, painful experiments and you
can see where our sadness, and our anger, comes from.
We acted as operatives not only of compassion, but good science. Animal
research is not only cruel but hazardous -- as data derived from the
animal models is not applicable to humans and therefore dangerous.
Our aim in inflicting as much economic damage as possible is to drive
up the cost of animal experimentation until this sadistic
is no longer economically feasible.
Our aim in liberating animals should be obvious. Giving them a new life
free of the hell that is the LSU ACF. For 21 mice, we've done that.
To vivisectors everywhere, you know your profession is one of cruelty
and unnecessary suffering.
Stop now or be stopped.
Always for the animals,
