Urge Mars Candy Company to End Cruel and Unnecessary Animal Testing

Target: Mars CEO Paul Michaels

Goal: Stop ridiculously cruel and unnecessary animal testing indefinitely

Mars candy company continues to induce suffering on millions of animals in ridiculous tests that are not required by law. Rabbits, rats, and mice suffer through painful tests that are unnecessary and provide results that are not transferable to humans whatsoever. Please tell this candy giant to cease this senseless torture and end animal testing indefinitely.

Mars candy, the maker of Skittles, Starburst, Dove, Three Musketeers, Twix and other candies still funds deadly animal tests that are both worthless and unnecessary. The candy giant is not required by law to perform any animal testing, yet it still spends huge amounts of money torturing animals like rabbits and rats. Mars pays for tests that study the effects of chocolate on blood vessels. Tests include force feeding cocoa by shoving plastic tubes down animal’s throats and then slicing open delicate flesh on their legs to expose an artery, only to kill them after the experiment. Several companies, such as Hershey’s, Coca-Cola, and Welch’s, have recognized the uselessness and cruelty of animal testing and have discontinued the barbaric practice.

Animal testing has no place in modern society. Inducing suffering on innocent creatures is shameful, especially when it provides no human benefit in any way. Please tell Mars candy company to end this senseless suffering and pledge to shut down all animal testing completely.

PETITION LETTER

Dear Paul Michaels,

I was disgusted to learn that Mars continues to fund deadly and unnecessary animal testing. The horrific tests being performed on behalf of Mars are not required by law, nor are they justifiable in the scientific community. Please listen to your consumers’ requests and end this shameful practice of animal testing immediately.

Mars pays for heinous testing to be performed on animals in various painful, unnecessary experiments. One recent study was concerned with the effects of chocolate on the blood vessels of rodents. During the study, animals have plastic tubes jammed down their throats; they are then force fed large quantities of cocoa. These innocent creatures then have their sensitive legs cut open in order to expose their arteries for testing. Having suffered greatly, these animals are then ruthlessly killed, never  being given the slightest of concern or comfort. Many of your competitors, including Hershey’s, have sworn off animal testing for good, responding to public requests.

Please follow suit and do your part to end the senseless suffering of innocent creatures. Mars has no business testing on animals and until Mars is cruelty free, neither I, nor my friends or family members will be buying any Mars products.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Animal testing is unnecessary and the results unreliable. This has been proven.
