The U.S. Navy squeezes the life out of animals in deadly decompression sickness/illness (DCS/DCI) and oxygen toxicity experiments. Not only are these tests irrelevant to human health, they’re also inconsistent with international standards adopted by our allies that no longer use animals for such purposes.
PETA is asking you to help end this atrocity masquerading as science.
If you’re a veteran of the U.S. Navy, please take a photo of yourself holding a sign—or a message on a laptop or tablet—that reads in large, bold letters, “I’m a U.S. Navy veteran. Stop torturing animals in experiments.” Please e-mail your photo to [email protected] with “Navy” in the subject line.
We’ll use these photos to send a powerful message to the Navy to get in line with international standards and end the use of all animals in these deadly and pointless DCS/DCI and oxygen toxicity tests in favor of superior, human-relevant, non-animal research methods.
