Inside Experimenters’ Monkey ‘Factory Farm’

Thousands of monkeys are imported to the UK for experiments each year. But where do they come from, and how do they end up in British laboratories?

A recent undercover investigation by the National Anti-Vivisection Society (NAVS) has shed new light on the abhorrent primate trade. The graphic images from its exposé of a breeding facility in Mauritius – one of the biggest suppliers of laboratory monkeys in the world – tell a sickening story of routine abuse inflicted on monkeys, many of whom were snatched from the wild.

We Love Lucy

Made in Chelsea star Lucy Watson knows a thing or two about glamour – and she knows there’s nothing glamorous about wearing fur. That’s why she posed au naturel for PETA’s latest ad, which she unveiled today in billboard form on the streets of Chelsea! Lucy’s look for the shoot was perfected by celebrity make-up artist, Justine Jenkins.

We followed him around for a day to create a gallery that shows how PETA’s goose is working hard to end Fortnum & Mason’s sales of cruelly produced foie gras.

48 Coffins for 48 Bulls

Bulls die bloody deaths in Pamplona every year. It’s bad enough that at the Spanish city’s annual San Fermín festival, terrified animals stumble and fall as they are hounded through the streets by unthinking tourists. But what many people don’t realise is that these bulls are being herded straight towards the bullring – and an agonising death.

In bullfights, bulls are stabbed repeatedly in the back and neck by groups of men on horseback. Sometimes the lances pierce the animals’ lungs, which will then fill up with blood. The matador then … Read more.
