Through my eyes

Mis à jour le 14 May 2019

One Voice invites you to discover animal experimentation through the eyes of animals. These are the dogs, the monkeys, the rabbits who are sacrificed every day in the French laboratories.

"They came and pulled me out of my cage. I was firmly held and something long and thin was inserted into my mouth. I did not like that. I got angry when they put it deeper down my throat. It was not food. I felt it slipping down inside me. I was suffocating. I understood that it was not normal. Every day, for months, it started again. They took me out of my cage and forcefully inserted this tube in the back of my throat where they leaked something. What they put in my belly started to make me feel sick. After that, I did not always want to eat what was brought to me. When I did eat, I sometimes threw up everything. After several months, I was out of my cage one last time. They held me firmly and shaved my leg. I then felt something sharp sink into it. A feeling of cold suddenly swept over me when a liquid was spilled into my veins. I suddenly felt very tired. I remembered the smell of my mother. I would have liked to have been with her again."

Support our fight to see an end to these experiments on our companions !

"I screamed in panic when they brutally strapped me to a restraining device, but no one came to help me. My head was firmly maintained. A device was implanted into my skull, which was hurting me so much, it was the pulled up and fixed on a bar above me. I could not move. On a big screen in front of me, sets of patterns began to appear. For months I endured this trauma, I learned that when this pattern was repeated, I had to quickly press a button in front of me. I was then rewarded with a little fruit juice delivered drop by drop into my mouth. I wanted this juice. I had not had any liquid for several hours and I was very, very thirsty. After several hours, I was released from this device and put back into a cage. I did not fight this time. I wanted to sleep. I wanted to forget."

Support our fight towards the end of primate experiments !

"I curled up in the cage when a hand tried to catch me. Stronger than me, she manages to grab me. I was then locked in a box from where only my head was sticking out. I could not move. I looked around and saw rows of my companions locked up in the same way. Then a man walked towards me. I began to breathe faster. I struggled to escape, without success. The man lifted one of my eyelids and instilled something in my eye. Everything has become vague. The substance burned as my vision began to disappear. I saw almost nothing and the burning sensation persisted.

I wanted that to stop. I wanted to remove this stuff but I could not. It was so bad. I was struggling, I could not scratch my eye. Finally, the man came back. After examining my eye, he put me back in my empty, cold cage. I was alone, scared, and in pain. I hoped he would not come back."

Support our fight for the end of animal experimentation !

Contre la maltraitance animale. Ce sont des êtres sensibles qui ressentent la peur et la douleur. Nous devons essayer d'autres alternatives que l'expérimentation animale .c'est notre devoir d'être "humain".

Stop aux tueries organisées par les laboratoires.

Comment est ce possible d'accepter ces pratiques et on se dit civilisés. Honte à ces hommes et femmes qui maltraitent les animaux sans défense. Ils n'ont qu'à essayer ces traitements sur eux on verra alors leurs réactions. Laissez les animaux vivre en paix - ils n'ont rien demandé. ...dégoûté des humains...
