Mishandeling van proefdieren
.Between March and June 2016, an undercover investigator of GAIA worked as animal caretaker in the Animalarium of the Free University of Brussels (Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Jette Campus), one of the main universities in Belgium. GAIA’s investigator witnessed how research animals were subjected daily to painful tests with routine complacency, neglect, insufficient care and regard for animal suffering and welfare. He witnessed cruel and shocking killing methods. The research mice, rats, rabbits and pigs in the Animalarium of the VUB suffer a great deal more than is accounted for or indicated in the experiments they are used for.
