Protests Over UCSF Vivisection
Day of the Dog Encourages Alternatives to Animal Testing
Animal experimentation is a multibillion-dollar industry involving a complex web of corporate, government, and university laboratories, animal breeders, and their suppliers. Animal rights supporters and proponents of more-applicable, human-based research held Day of the Dog protests December 1st and 3rd, and a vigil December 6th, against experiments at the University of California San Francisco that will exploit up to 750 dogs over a period of 3 years. Most of the dogs will be surgically implanted with pacemakers and will either die from the ordeal in less than 6 months or be "euthanized" and have their hearts removed for further study. Unweaned puppies as young as one day old are also being used. Animals used in experiments for taxpayer-financed grant money at UCSF include rodents, rabbits, dogs, cats, sheep, pigs, ferrets, squirrels and nonhuman primates. Read More · Photos: 1 | 2

Additionally, a vigil was held the evening of December 1st to honor the 40,000 animals harmed in research across the Bay at UC Berkeley.
