Durham University used 14,500 animals in tests over the last three years
From rabbits to guinea pigs
The Tab can reveal that Durham University has tested on 14577 animals over the last 3 years, with 3152 dying as a result.
Animals used in the tests varied from rabbits, guinea pigs and mice to zebra fish and rats.
The purpose of the tests carried out was similar each year, notably antibody production, breeding and maintaining transgenic animals, sensory processed and drug effects and neuroscience studies of learning and memory.
3152 died from the tests overall, with 1240 dying in 2015 alone.
The university failed to respond to how many animals were harmed as a result, saying: “All regulated procedures are regulated because they are ‘likely to cause pain, distress or lasting harm’.”
