4. A list of corporations that supply Hunting Life Sciences:
Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS) are the largest contract testing laboratory in Europe. They have about 70,000 animals on site, including rabbits, cats, hamsters, dogs, guinea-pigs, birds and monkeys. These animals are destined to suffer and die in cruel, useless experiments.
HLS will test anything for anybody. They carry out experiments which involve poisoning animals with household products, pesticides, drugs, herbicides, food colourings and additives, sweeteners and genetically modified organisms. Every three minutes an animal dies inside Huntingdon totaling 500 innocent lives every single day.
Huntingdon Life Sciences is the most exposed laboratory in the world. In recent years they have been infiltrated and exposed at least seven separate times for disgusting animal cruelty and rule breaking. Each time horrific evidence of animal abuse and staff incompetence has been uncovered, including workers punching beagle puppies in the face.

Huntingdon Life Sciences
As a regular customer of Staples and Xerox, I was quite saddened to see your support of Huntingdon Life Sciences in the United Kingdom. Perhaps you were not aware of your company's affiliation with this HLS? You can learn more at:
HLS participates in a form of "animal research" called vivisection which is the practice of cutting up animals alive. You can learn more here:
As an animal lover, and a consumer, I hope you re-examine your business relationship with HLS. Whatever kind of research they are doing for you, I am sure there are other companies that can do it much more humanely.
In the era Web 2.0 where the masses have so much power online, your relationship with HLS is being discussed all over MySpace, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. This just can't be good for your bottom line or your reputation.
I am sure the organization SHAC would be thrilled to take you off their list of target list... and put you on their hero list:
Thanks for you time!
