Have you ever heard of Covance? Covance is the largest contributor to animal cruelty and testing. You might not know it, but a lot of today’s industrial chemicals used and ingredients for cosmetics and tobacco are tested by Covance. Companies may not say they do animal testing, but they actually leave it to a testing company like Covance to do the job. In Covance tests, animals have had caustic (eye) chemicals dripped into their eyes and substances applied to their raw and abraded skin. Also during these tests, animal have had to inhale deadly toxins, which result in either their death, or cancer. The animals here only don’t endure pain through testing, but also through torture and unnecessary killing. For example, Covance workers have struck chocked and tormented monkeys in their test lab. Every year, more than 124,000 primates (mainly monkeys) are being killed. Covance is a powerful company with over 11,000 workers in over sixty countries resulting to have annual revenues of over $2 billion per year. What do they do with the money? Buy more animals, which are their solution.
Please sign this petition if you would like to help reduce animal testing by Covance. Animal cruelty has gone for too long; we need to make a change. One hundred animal lives are not worth it for a product that might not enter the market.
