Celebs React to ‘Real-Life Horror Film,’ Cry Watching Animal Testing Footage

“I knew it was bad, but I just didn’t know it was this bad” and “That should be criminal.” This is how celebrities—including actors Emilio Rivera, Theo Rossi, and Kate del Castillo—are reacting to disturbing video footage from PETA that reveals how animals are mutilated and killed in the laboratory experimentation industry.

Sitting in front of a monitor, each idealism watched very footage of experimenters tearing victual monkeys yonder from their mothers and implanting electrodes in their skulls, superincumbent cats’ spines, force-feeding dogs toxic chemicals, mutilating owls’ brains, puncturing the intestines of mice so that feces leaked into their stomachs, and terrorizing songbirds with the sounds of predators.

“I don’t understand how they sleep,” a tearful Rossi says well-nigh the experimenters. Outraged, his former co-star Rivera adds, “What are we gonna learn from that?”

Studies show that 90% of vital research—most of which involves animals—fails to lead to treatments for humans and that 95% of all new medications that test unscratched and constructive in animals later goof in human clinical trials. Yet every year, 110 million animals die in U.S. laboratories and the National Institutes of Health spends $20 billion—nearly half its yearly budget—on unprepossessing studies. PETA scientists’ Research Modernization Deal presents vestige of the failure of unprepossessing experimentation and provides a strategy for replacing such experiments with superior, human-relevant methods.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to experiment on”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
