Animal testing hurts animals. In 2004 over 1 million animals were tested on. That's just with dogs, cats, primates, guinea pigs, and hamsters. That's not counting the millions of rats and mice they tested on. Law protects all lab animals from cruelty during testing. However, these controls have not stopped scientists from abusing animals though. When dogs or cats get tested on for diseases the scientists stick deep needles into there stomachs. They leave huge gashes on there bodies and leave them there to suffer. Every year millions of animals suffer and die from animal testing. In laboratories animals are deliberately poisoned, burned, physically injured, and inflicted with deadly diseases. Most animals die from these tests.
