Save Animals Reportedly Living in Filthy, Negligent Labs

Target: Uri Yehuda Ariel, Minister of Agriculture

Goal: Investigate labs accused of keeping animals in horrific conditions and failing to provide veterinary care.

A volunteer in the zoological research branch of Tel Aviv University recently released photos of the animals used in the laboratories and they were not easy to look at. Mice, rats, gerbils and other animals have allegedly been subjected to extreme mental and physical stress and it is time to put this to an end.

The pictures appear to show the animals living in filth. Green algae was growing in the water, dirt and grime filled the cages along with maggots and flies, and dead bodies were left to rot in cages. Many of the animals were denied veterinary care, water and adequate space, with some cages having as many as 50 mice crammed inside.

Sign this petition and demand that Israel’s Department of Agriculture investigate Tel Aviv University’s labs. These animals should not be subjected to this torture any longer.


Dear Mr. Ariel,

Recently, graphic photos from inside the zoological research labs of Tel Aviv University were released. The animals, mainly mice, rats, gerbils and other rodents, have allegedly been subjected to cruel physical and mental stress while in these laboratories.

According to the former volunteer who took the photos, the animals were forced to live in dirty cages filled with dirt, grime, decaying bodies, maggots and flies. As if the filth wasn’t already bad enough, some of the cages were crammed with up to 50 mice.

In addition, many of the animals were reportedly denied veterinary care when they needed it most. One animal had a wound so deep it was exposing bone, however care was not given until a month later.

Please investigate these laboratories and save the animals from these cruel experiments.

  1. No matter how small they are, they are living beings like humans and their lives matter as well.

    Nasty bastards. They owe all they know to to the ignorant nasty chinese obviously.


  4. Animals do not belong in Labs, use pedophiles are prisoners that are in for life. You cannot compare the use of an animal and testing to a human as our makeup is different and our sizes as well. This is cruel it needs to stop leave these animals alone they deserve to be free and live wherever they’re supposed to live

  5. As a person who is involved in the medical field, I cannot reason that the “ends justify the means.” With alternatives ever increasingly, please consider using them such as organ on chips, in vitro cell cultures, computer modeling and etc… Implement the 3 R’S (refine, reduce and REPLACE) of research! Even the director (Dr. Elias Zerhoni) at the National Institute of Health here in the US was against animal testing, basically saying it was pointless and useless. Please do better, stop the suffering of innocent animals.

    Let’s end research here and all over the world!

    All living beings deserve to live a life free from pain and suffering.
