The death toll of over 121,000 animals is still a bloody stain on Ireland’s reputation. Once again, most of these killings are due to extremely cruel poisoning tests of botox-type products.
Catherine MorrowIAVS Chairperson
We are very disturbed by the large increase of 29% in the number of animals used in ‘basic research’. The government’s licensing of these experiments shows it gives no meaningful regard to the welfare of the animals.
Dr Dan LyonsIAVS Policy Advisor
Despite the existence of non-animal methods, the government has continued to licence animal testing for cosmetic botulinum while doing nothing to facilitate sharing of knowledge regarding these non-animal tests.
